ELECTIONS FOR THE LOWER HOUSE OF SOMALI FEDERAL PARLIAMENT SHOULD PROCEED WITHOUT DELAY

The Federal Member States (FMS) should conduct elections expeditiously as the only legal instrument to break the political logjam and power struggle in Mogadishu. They should take note of the senseless confrontations between the Caretaker prime minister, Mohamed Hussein Roble and former president, Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo, whose constitutional mandate to stay in Villa Somalia had expired eight months ago, but still stuck there issuing unlawful executive orders.

The idea behind enshrining a federal system in the Federal Constitution was to allow Somalia to continue to function under similar circumstances of political and security upheavals in the Capital City. This is the time to show Somalis and world community at large that Somali State shall never collapse as it did in 1990s.

Donors and members of the international community (IC) should understand this fundamental historical change in Somalia’s governance – that there are functioning federal states in the country, which need all the support and logistics necessary to hold the elections now, despite the political paralysis at Federal Government leadership. This is the time to act decisively at both FMS and IC levels. Let us not miss this golden opportunity.
