Southwest state says it suspended cooperation with PM

BAIDOA, Somalia - Southwest State has condemned a decision by the Prime Minister of Somalia Mohamed Hussin Roble to suspend the election of three Lower House seats elected in Baidoa city.

In a statement, the regional presidency described the move as 'illegal and unacceptable', adding it clearly violated the consensus reached by the National Consultative Forum [NCF] on the election.

Southwest will never accept the personal ambitions of Prime Minister Roble who has in recent times been constantly violating the independence of the Electoral Commissions,' the statement reads in part.

The regional state believes that the FEIT's move was politically motivated obstruction of seats elected in their constituencies in line with the electoral procedure and called on the Federal poll body to stop blatant interference.

Southwest state which is led by Abdiaziz Lafta-Garen, a close ally of outgoing Somali president Mohamed Faramjo vowed not to work with PM Roble, who is in charge of the country's elections.
