Farmajo calls for Consultative forum over poll process

MOGADISHU (SD) – Somali president Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo has called for a consultative forum to resolve differences over electoral process.

In a statement by Villa Somalia, President Farmajo said the forum which will convene leaders of the country’s regional states will take place in Dhusamareeb town of central Somalia.

According to the statement, among other issues to discuss in the three-day conference is 17th September agreement on the electoral process.

“As part of our efforts on the Sept. 17 elections agreement, I will have a 3 days consultative forum with FMS Leadership in Samareeb (Dhusamareeb) from 1st to 3rd Feb 2021,” the president said.

Farmajo said in the statement that he would share the outcome of conference with the parliament whose mandate time lapsed last year.

“15th Feb, I will address the two Houses of Federal Parliament on our national progress especially on Federal elections,” Villa Somalia said.

The development comes barely hours after international community pressured Farmajo to break the deadlock over the electoral process.

On Saturday, Farmajo held talks with international community envoys in Mogadishu over the country’s current political crisis.

During the meeting, president Farmajo assured the envoys of his government’s commitment to uphold the electoral agreement signed on 17 September 2020 as ratified by the Federal Parliament of Somalia.
