Key parliament session postponed amid extension claims

MOGADISHU, Somalia - The parliamentary session that was due to take place on Monday at 9:00 a.m. has been postponed until Wednesday, according to a statement released by the acting Speaker of the Somali Parliament Mohamed Mursal.

In a short text message sent to the lawmakers, the controversial Speaker announced that the session will be held on 31st March following a meeting between the Farmajo-sided regional leaders and his opponents in which they discussed the extension.

The joint-conference between Regional leaders - with the Mayor of Mogadishu and the outgoing President is expected to be held in a matter of time during this week since February.

The denial of some of the lawmakers from attending the session created chaos that has captured nationwide attention, sparking outrage among the MPs who vowed to make their way to the House despite the suspension.

Mahad Salad, an opposition lawmaker, has highlighted the motive behind the plot saying that it is driven by the head of NISA, Fahad Yasin, the right-hand man of Farmajo.

The aim to deploy undercover agents to the Lower House is to assassinate those opposing the alleged Farmajo’s extension, according to the MP.

The futile attempt that followed the decline of the session on Saturday has shown the extent of Farmajo and Fahad's plan to tear down the much-anticipated conference by taking one further step to make room for extension.
