Mogadishu (SD) – A joint statement issued by the Galmudug and HirShabelle administrations made it clear that the September 17 elections were an agreement, and opposed the two-year extension.
The two administrations, which one had previously supported the other and remained silent on the extension, now appear to have changed their stance and formally rejected the extension.
“Any obstacle to the implementation of the agreement on September 17 should be stopped and removed,” the two administrations said.
A statement from the South West Administration welcomed the decision by Galmudug and HirShabelle leaders opposing the extension and supported Prime Minister Roble’s decision.
South West said to be committed to saving the country and holding a snap and inclusive election.
The move by Galmudug, HirShabelle and South West is a political blow to the outgoing President Farmajo who tried to gain support for the extension.
The Jubaland and Puntland administrations, one of the five TFG member states, have previously opposed Farmajo’s two-year extension, and only the Banadir administration now supports the extension.
