U.S. continue to put pressure on Somalia leaders over election

MOGADISHU, Somalia - The United States is putting more pressure on Somali political leaders to reach an agreement on the election rift after they failed to iron out their differences through peaceful talks.

The U.S. embassy in Mogadishu has issued a statement on Tuesday that said that there is no enough time to waste so that the leaders should convene an emergency meeting on the completion of the Sep 17 electoral agreement.

"Time is running out. We urge the Federal Government of Somalia and Federal Member States leaders to meet now, do the right thing for the people of Somalia, and complete this election," said the U.S. embassy. 

Since the end of Farmajo's 4-year term in office on Feb 8, the United States has used harsh language against Somali political leaders, blaming them for their failure in agreeing on an election model and move the country forward. 

The international community also called on Farmajo and the regional leaders to hold a meeting in the coming days to resolve the dispute over the election process in Somalia.

Farmajo has been accused of being the main obstacle to the election he mulls to overstay in power by using the national army to oppress his critics and opposition regional leaders.
