Somalia now on the path to elections in 2 months after deal

MOGADISHU, Somalia - Somalia’s political leaders have today signed an election agreement following four days of talks in Mogadishu, a move that is expected to lead the country to a peaceful and inclusive vote.

The PM of the country Mohamed Hussein Role has played a significant role lauded by the international community in ending the long-standing dispute over the implementation of the failed Sep 17 poll deal.

“Several days of negotiations between the FGS, FMS, and Benadir Region in the spirit of responsiveness, compromise and consensus have, in the interest of the Nation & people, culminated in a mutually acceptable solution to the national electoral impasse,” said PM Roble.

It has been agreed that the parliamentary and presidential elections will be held within 60 days, with reconciliation being held in the disputed Gedo, where Farmajo and Ahmed Madobe fought for control.

Among the contentious issues resolved include the seats of the northern regions in parliament with Senate speaker allowed to appoint 4 members in the state and federal level electoral teams while deputy PM has been given 4 members.

Somalia is now on the path to elections with leaders asking the international partners to help the country in funding the electoral process and security of the vote that could cost missions of dollars.
