Roble: “Neutral forces will be in charge of election security”

Mogadishu (SD) – Somali Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble said his government is committed to building a special, neutral and impartial electoral security force.

The Prime Minister made the remarks during a meeting with members of the international community in Mogadishu today.

The prime minister said the force would operate within the legal framework after consulting with all political stakeholders.

Roble added that after consulting with regional administrations, he is ready to implement elections in the country based on the September 17th agreement.

Roble said the only obstacle to the election is the completion of the September 17th agreement, following the recommendations of the Baidoa conference.

He called on the United Nations and other members of the international community to launch plans to provide logistical, technical and financial support to the electoral process.

Somali President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo recently told parliament that he had tasked the Prime Minister with organizing and securing the election.
