Resumption of Somali election talks confirmed amid deadlock

MOGADISHU, Somalia - Villa Somalia confirms Somali election talks will resume today in Mogadishu, amid reports of further obstruction by the outgoing president Farmajo who is hesitant to reach a deal on the contentious issues.

Abdirashid Mohamed Hashi, Director of Communications of the Presidency said on Wednesday that all the five regional leaders, Mogadishu mayor, and Farmajo are at the Afisyoni venue to recommence the talks.

The second phase of the ice-breaking meeting is aimed to agree on a common agenda for the next forum which is expected to end the outstanding issues related to the electoral process in the Horn of Africa nation.

There has been no concrete agreement was reached in the past rounds of talks between the Federal Government and the regional states who are at loggerhead over key issues, including the poll committee.

The country is facing a new cycle of political and electoral crisis after Farmajo’s 4-year year expired last February without a new leader in place. The international partners voiced concern over the situation.
