The President-elect has met with HealthCare professionals and experts at a time when HealthCare of the country is in a really poor condition. Hospitals, Clinics and other HealthCare facilities are compacted in only the big cities, and even most of those in the capital Hargeisa, and completely unavailable in the rest of the country. The HealthCare is also largely privatized, and thus unaffordable to the poor and most of the middle class citizens which makes up the largest portion of the country’s population. Improving the HealthCare system was a major area of campaign in the produced Kulmiye Party Manifesto and with the consultation of these Professionals, the people of Somaliland expect the President-elect to deliver on his promises.

The education system is also an area of concern for many Somalilanders.

The President-elect has met with Professionals from the Education Sector and some of the owners and presidents of the privately owned universities to discuss the challenges facing the education system of the country and how could solutions be found for the.

A sector in destitute need of reforms is the Justice System of the country. In the campaign, you could see a big posters of the now President-elect photo with the caption of ‘Justice and equality’. The rule of law, equality among the citizens and justice are areas of inproportionate failure of the leaving administration and the challenge of fixing a broken justice system is major challenge for the President-elect and how he carries it out has already has the attention of the people. And to start execute his plans of reforms he has met with Lawyers and legal experts for consultation and other legal experts.
