Somalia’s election talks enter 3rd day in Mogadishu

MOGADISHU, Somalia -  Somali PM Mohamed Hussein Roble is holding a fresh round of talks with regional state leaders in Mogadishu, in the latest attempt to break the electoral impasse in the country.

The closed-door meeting at Afisyoni tent entered today for the third day in a row with leaders are discussing finding a solution to the deadlock over the implementation of the Sep 17 poll agreement.

The outgoing president Farmajo held "extensive rounds" of meetings with the leaders of Puntland, Jubaland, Galmudug, Southwest, and HirShbelle over the past few months but failed to yield fruits.

The contentious issues that delayed election deadlines include a vote for parliamentary seats in Gedo, the poll committee for Somaliland MPs’ election, and the appointment of a national-level electoral team.

The international community has constantly urged Somali leaders to put aside their personal differences and make a genuine compromise for the interest of the country to hold inclusive and peaceful elections.
