LOWER HOUSE OF PARLIAMENT: 
• The number of parliamentary seats in the Lower House will be 275.

• The remaining 6 members of the Upper House of Parliament will be divided equally between Somaliland and Puntland, reflecting both their political status and maturity and the fact that they encompass the largest numbers of regions. 
• A minimum quota of 30% of the seats in the Upper House of Parliament shall be reserved for women.
