Election talks in Somalia on brink of collapse as war of words intensifies

MOGADISHU, Somalia – The latest round of the electoral talks between the outgoing president Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo and the leaders of the Federal states are now at serious risk of collapse.

Villa Somalia announced this week that Farmajo will convene a dialogue in Mogadishu on 4th March to finalize the Sep 17 agreement signed by the capital that hit the first snag over its implementation process.

There are signs that the much-anticipated conference is never going to take place today as Jubaland and Puntland leaders stick to a firm stance on moving the venue to the Halane compound adjacent to the airport, citing security reasons.

It’s the third time Villa Somalia fails to proceed with the poll talks due to the divisions among the stakeholders over the delayed elections first scheduled to kick start last December 2020.

The opposition candidates termed the March 4 meeting as a plot to disrupt the deal they signed with the outgoing PM Mohamed Hussein Roble which seeks to bring an end to the differences over the Mogadishu rally. 

The war-torn Horn of Africa nation is currently in a state of uncertainty with talks between leaders deteriorating, the country is facing one of the worst political turmoil now more than ever.
