Somalia: Presidential Candidates’ Conference Releases Statement

Mogadishu (SD) – Former Somali federal information minister and current presidential candidate Dahir Mohamud Guelleh give details of the 2021 Somali presidential candidates’ consultative meeting that opened in Mogadishu today.

He said the conference will go on for two more days, and that the candidates will discuss ways to address the disputed election process.

Elaborating on the end of the first phase of the conference, he said that the candidates for the presidency of Somalia who gathered at the meeting today saw a great threat to the fledgling democracy in Somalia.

Dahir Guelleh also said that today’s meeting opposition candidates forgave each, and that the conference would be a way to secure the future of Somalia.

“The candidates felt that Somalia’s fledgling democracy is about to turn into a powerful dictatorship, and that this is a threat to the entire country, as we came together and forgive each other, and we agreed to focus on how to get Somalia out of this situation, and we can,” said Dahir Mohamud Guelleh.

Most of these candidates have arrived in Mogadishu in recent days, and have joined forces to protest against the conduct of the country’s 2020/2021 presidential election.

The candidates have the most complaints about the nominated members of the Electoral and Dispute Resolution Committees, and are set to make a joint decision on the nominated commissions.

Participating presidential candidates included Hassan Ali Kheyre, Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, Sharif Sheikh Ahmed, Abdirahman Abdishakur, Abdikadir Osoble Ali, Dahir Mohamud Guelleh, Mustafe Sheikh Ali Duhulow, Abdikarim Hussein Guled, Sharif Hassan Sheikh Aden and others attended the conference in Mogadishu today.
