Mogadishu (SD) – Somalia’s international Partners said in a statement that it was concerned that the growing rift between the President and the Prime Minister would destabilize Somalia and disrupt the electoral process.
“As Somalis mark the one-year anniversary of the 17 September Agreement, international partners are increasingly alarmed that the escalating dispute between the President and Prime Minister will undermine Somalia’s stability and derail the electoral process.” said Somalia’s International Partners.
Adding “We urge the President and Prime Minister to resolve their differences immediately, avoid further unhelpful exchanges of public statements and personnel announcements, refrain from any action that could destabilize the security situation, and re-focus on concluding the overdue elections without further delay.”
A statement from the International Community Representatives for Somalia said the fragmentation of the country’s top leadership and the current politicization is a new threat that could undermine progress.
“The Somali people need and deserve effective and inclusive governance. The ongoing division and politicisation risks undermining the important progress that has been made.” said Somalia’s International Partners
The news from the international community comes at a time when the rift between Farmajo and Roble has reached its worst point and the president has announced that he has limited the prime minister’s powers.
The international community has not commented on their next steps if the dispute escalates further.
