Parliamentary elections were due to be held in Somaliland in September 2010. However, the Parliament, the President and the Electoral Commission said it was not possible to hold it. Consequently, mandates for the current legislators were extended into 2013, despite opposition parties claiming the move was illegal. Elections were postponed again due to a lack of a proper voter register, which was not expected to be completed before 2014. In April 2013, the House of Elders voted to extend the parliamentary term for another two years in order to align them with the presidential elections.
