Mogadishu (SD) – A meeting between Somalia’s Prime Minister Mohamed Roble and the country’s Union Council of Candidates at the Decale Hotel in Mogadishu failed at midnight.
The two sides were discussing a proposal which will allow the Union Council of candidates to participate in the country’s election process discussions, which the PM rejected.
Abdirahman Abdishakur, who spoke on behalf of the Union of Candidates, said Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble was unable to make the decision, due to reluctance from president Farmajo.
Abdirahman speaking at a press conference accused the Somali Prime Minister of failing to exercise his constitutional powers.
Meanwhile, security minister Hassan Xundubey at a press conference confirmed talks between the candidates and the government, which took up to seven hours, failed to produce any results, as the opposition demanded that they be included in the consultative meetings between state and federal government leaders.
Minister Xundubey said this was unprecedented and the decision is not to be made by the government, and that the talks will continue.
