As time is running out, Jubaland send its electoral members to OPM

KISMAYO, Somalia - The President of Jubaland Ahmed Madobe has submitted to the office of the Prime Minister of Somalia a list of 12 members who will represent his administration in the country's electoral commissions.

Jubaland, one of the five regional states in Somalia, has nominated eight members in SEIT, two in FEIT, and two others in the electoral dispute resolution committee, according to a statement issued by the office of the Somali PM.

The remaining Federal States are expected to send their nominees to OPM in the coming hours as the deadline nears to close this week. The opposition candidates call for the removal of alleged spy agents and civil servants from the election teams before the polls.

The announcement comes five days after Somali leaders both Federal Government and regional administrations have signed an agreement in Mogadishu that ended the deadlock over the electoral process in Somalia that has been running for nearly a year.

Somalia is heading to an indirect election in which clan elders will pick the MPs who will then vote for a president, a system that the country has been practicing since 2000 due to the lack of stability and lawlessness.
