HARGEISA (SD) Somaliland’s opposition parties, Waddani and UCID, have welcomed a proposal put forward by the businessmen tasked with resolving the Somaliland elections dispute.
The chairman of the UCID Eng. Faisal Ali Waraabe party and the secretary of the party, Khadar Hussein Abdi, who spoke to the media, said that they accepted and welcomed the proposal of the committee, as to protect the reputation and unity of Somaliland.
They said that they are waiting for the legislative council, since the mediation committee has forwarded their proposals, in order to implemented the proposals.
The government of Somaliland has not yet commented on its position on the mediation committee’s proposal to hold the presidential and political organizations at the same time, without an extended term extension for president Muse Bihi.
The government of Somaliland and the two national parties disagree on President Bihi’s desire to extend his term in office, leading to deadly protests in the unrecognized enclave.
