Mogadishu (SD) – Somalia’s Speaker of the Upper House Abdi Hashi Abdullahi, in a new statement discusses the dispute over the issue of the election of members of both houses of parliament from the Northern Regions (Somaliland).
A statement from the office of speaker Abdi Hashi said that no one from the northern regions attended the country’s elections discussions and no agreement has been reached on this issue.
The speaker accused the outgoing President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo and the government of working hard not to discuss the upcoming parliamentary elections process of the Northern Regions, and of spreading false information.
Abdi Hashi made it clear in his statement that his argument was not that the northern election committee should be divided between him and Mahdi Mohamed Guled Khadar or anyone else, but that he is the rightful leader of administering the Somaliland election process.
The speaker made it clear to regional governments and others involved in finding a solution to the Somali elections that the people of Somaliland want to be independent in administering the Northern Regional Parliamentary elections, through a high-level committee process.
