Elections in South West State, Somalia are scheduled on November 17. Under its constitution, Somalia is a federal republic, giving different regions of the country and their associated clans, a degree of regional autonomy. Among these, SWS has suffered the most insecurity, violence, displacement and destitution since the collapse of the Siad Barre regime in 1990 – this in spite of its being the breadbasket of Somalia.
