PM Roble held talks with opposition and regional leaders

MOGADISHU, Somalia - The acting Somali PM, Mohamed Hussein Roble has met with the opposition candidates and leaders of Galmudug and Hirshabelle as well as opposition candidates last night in Mogadishu.

The meeting focused on mainly the security of Mogadishu and ways to resume the poll talks based on the 17 Sep deal signed between Farmajo and the leaders of the five Federal Member States as well as the governor of the Benadir region.

Farmajo is facing pressure from the US to ensure holding free and inclusive elections in the country and disown his two-year illegal term extension endorsed by the Lower House April 12.

Roble requested the opposition candidates to stay away from any kind of setback to the ongoing efforts aimed to stabilize the nation and rest assured that his cabinet will take the responsibility to make the elections happen on time.

The meeting follows the statement released by the acting PM in which he pledged to hold an election nullifying the extension term of the two years with rumors suggesting that the two divided over that decision.

The outgoing leader is expected to stand before the Parliament in the upcoming Saturday with fear that the acting PM might be removed by a vote of no confidence as he is believed to have stood up against the extension move.

The outspoken leader of Wadajir Party has warned those lawmakers who regulated the extension term for Farmaajo to validate once again a controversial bill that could lead the nation to unrest saying anything can be expected from those who sided with the Villa.
