HOW TO UNDERSTAND THE NOISES SURROUNDING SOMALI LEADERS’ COMMUNIQUE ON ELECTION

People have short memories on recent developments on the issue. They fail to recall political impasses and stalemates that have degenerated just recently into violence between the opposition elements and Federal Government. A number of Mogadishu residents and security personnel got hurt or lost their lives. Signs of 1991 Civil War appeared in Mogadishu with clan militiamen occupying parts of the Capital City, threatening to storm Villa Somalia. At the time, even the leaders of Federal Member States were in disarray and at each other’s throat. There were sticking issues of Jubaland/Gedo, Hirshabelle/Hiiraan, composition of Federal electoral commission and more. Somalis alone and by themselves couldn’t resolve these problems – members of the international community had to intervene. Somali election impasse got reported to UN Security Council. The situation was getting bad and bleaker.

Yesterday’s Communique by the leaders of FMS and Prime Minister came out with unanimous decision and on consensus to hold the elections. Their decision is political rather than constitutional. It is the only option available to move Somalia forward. It is an outcome based on compromise. Somalis need to welcome it.
