Mogadishu (SD) – Somalia’s election consultative meeting scheduled to open on today in Mogadishu has been delayed according to sources.
The meeting was to be attended by DF leaders, state officials and other politicians, meant to focus on ways to accelerating the electoral process.
Sources in the Somali PM’s office confirmed to SD that the delay in the conference was due to technical issues.
The delay is due to the absence of most of the regional leaders, with the exception of the President of Galmudug who arrived in the capital last night.
Other regional leaders are expected to arrive in Mogadishu tomorrow, Friday, with the conference officially opening on Saturday.
Somalia’s Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble today expressed his hope that the forthcoming National Consultative Assembly meeting in Mogadishu will be a success.
Roble noted his commitment to making the conference a success, thanking Somali politicians and the public for their support, and called for their support.
Somalia’s current government term expired on February 8 and there are misunderstandings in the electoral process.
The PM’s office has not yet commented on the possibility of a delay in the election consultative meeting.
