Somalia’s long-delayed presidential election is scheduled for Sunday.

After more than a year of delay, violence and uncertainty – Somalia is ready to vote for its next president.

The original plan was to hold one-person, one-vote elections for the first time in 50 years.

But security concerns and legal and financial realities make this difficult.

Instead, the Somali parliament will choose the president.
