Abdul Abdi accused of rigging the votes for his nomination :damn:

In a nutshell, the Singer side is alleging a number of voting irregularities that may have tipped the result in Abdi’s favour.

According to an affidavit sworn by a Singer scrutineer, the losing candidate alleges, in Ben-Ami’s words:

  • “During voting, individuals with the Abdi campaign were observed in the voting booth area monitoring and instructing individuals how they should vote, contrary to Article 7 (m) of the Rules….”
  • “Upon the conclusion of voting and during counting of ballots, (the scrutineer) observed and reported seeing several ballots where the voter’s selection had clearly been changed. Following the sorting of the ballots, (the scrutineer) was prevented from observing and verifying the ballot count, basic and universally accepted duties of an election scrutineer.”

Ahmed Hussein is almost certainly assured a win, but can anyone update us on the % of the other two men??

Faisal Hasan will not win the seat. It is a very Liberal seat. You can have a tree stump represent the Liberals there and the tree stump will still win by a landslide. So unfortunately we have to forget about him. His Social Democratic party has 18% support there compared to 60% for Liberals.

Abdul Abdi the Conservative was supposed to win the seat he's running in. He was leading in the very start by a few percentage points and was a Conservative seat since 2006. Abdul has 31% compared to 49% for the Liberals. Abdul Abdi is finished but so are all Conservatives in Ottawa. Abdul Abdi has the Conservatives to blame for his expected loss since they had fights with govt unions.

But Puntland will now have greater influence in the new government with political representstion. The Somali community before used the chief of Staff of the former Foreign Minister (who was a Somali) to divert money Mogadishu to Bosaso. Projects to Mogadishu and Hargeisa were always denied but projects to Puntland were given the green light. If Liberals maintain their lead and win, there will be more things for Puntland and Ahmed Hussen doesn't even need to get a cabinet position for that to happen

God bless Puntland and God Bless Canada. On the real though, I don't of any projects the Canadian government has initiated in Puntland. That guy probably funnelled the money to his relatives NGO and they split the cash. :axvmm9o:
 
A trades program in Puntland happened because of Ahmed Hussen and another MJ guy. Ahmed Hussen would come a few times but Bairds' chief of staff and the other guy would have weekly Friday night Tim Horton sessions. Bureaucrats have denied the civil registration initiative in Hargeisa and very small projects in Sland

I found it but it says the UN High Commissioner for Refugees' Somalia representative was the one who suggested it to the Canadians.

Yeah, Faisal Hassan has no chance on winning. Kirsty Duncan is the MP of that district and she's extremely popular amongst her constituents. Even the Somalis absolutely love Ms Duncan and she's a prominent face in the community. Faisal Hassan is nothing but a fill-in, the NDP Party knows he has no chance in winning this election.

But stop with the blatant misinformation about Ahmed Hussen favoring Puntland. I've asked him this question directly and he's clearly focused only on the York South-Weston region and his constituents for now. He's a CANADIAN politician and his focus is on handling the issues of his CANADIAN constituents. What part of that don't you understand.

Is that you Buranbur??


But yeah, Abdul Abdi needs a +15 to even catch up, and there is maybe 35 days to election day. :eminemdamn:

Faisal is a goner. Even Ahmed Hussein might have some problems because polls usually tighten 2 to 3 weeks out from election time.
Yes, it's me cuz. New riding projections are out and Abdul Abdi is closing the gap a bit. As for Ahmed Hussen, trust me, he will win. He had it in the bag the day he won the liberal nomination. Some of those who are currently voting NDP will end up voting Liberal in fear of splitting the votes and having a Conservatives gov.
