Hashi and Guled resolve deadlock over Somaliland electoral body

MOGADISHU, Somalia - The highest politicians from Somaliland has signed an agreement in Mogadishu on Sunday to end a months-long standoff over the electoral commission spearheading the vote for the northern MPs.

The pact was inked at the residence of the Speaker of the Upper House Abdi Hashi in the presence of the Chief of the Supreme Court Bashe Yusuf Ahmed, and the deputy prime minister Mahadi Guled.

According to a statement obtained by Keydmedia English, they agreed on four points.

1. To end the differences between the two parties regarding the issues related to elections for seats in both houses of parliament from Somaliland.

2. To unite the rival leadership of Somaliland's SEIT with Hashi’s camp getting the deputy chair of the poll body.

3. To put an end to the division and work together on the implementation of free and fair elections.

4. To start the process for elections of Upper and Lower Houses as soon as possible in Mogadishu 

The dispute has been dragging on for a long time, and several meetings have failed to resolve it, but they have finally reached an agreement, thanks to the PM’s office for the mediation.

The new deal comes at a time when the Lower House elections have been postponed on Saturday for the third time, with the Upper House yet to be finalized due to a political dispute.
