Somali opposition throws weight behind PM’s decision

MOGADISHU, Somalia - The union of presidential candidates held a ZOOM meeting on Sunday night in Mogadishu on the current political situation in Somalia, mainly the emerged dispute between the PM and the president.

During the talks, the presidential hopefuls, including former leaders agreed to show support and solidarity with Prime Minister Roble in leading the country to a peaceful election this year.

Former deputy PM Ridwan Hirsi, who is currently the spokesman of the opposition candidates’ alliance said the outgoing president has no legal authority to bar the government from signing agreements.

“The term-ended president wants to hijack the country’s future by interfering with the electoral process and this is unacceptable and unconstitutional,” said Hirsi, adding that the PM is in charge of the election.

Keydmedia Online has learned that the opposition candidates agreed to stand with the PM on his Sunday decision invalidating Farmajo’s order that derails efforts to move the county forward.

On the other hand, Wadajir party leader Abdirahman Abdishakur held a closed-door meeting with the prime minister in the presidential palace on Sunday night with reports they discussed on current issues.
