PUNTLAND STATE OF SOMALIA
The official name of Puntland is “Puntland State of Somalia (Dawladda Puntland ee Somalia). This is the constitutional name of the State. Those who use the term “Dawlad-gobolleedka Puntland are wrong constitutionally and administratively. I admit myself got entangled with the term a couple of times. This term crepted into adminstrations’ vocabulary by Southerners reluctant to accept federalism. Most FMS administrations blindly use the term “dawlad-gobolleed” while not knowing where it was coming from.
Puntland State departments, agencies and institutions should avoid using the term Dawladd-gobolleed with regards to FMS.
