On Monday, the Speaker of the Somali Upper House believed that the People’s House vote on this article was unconstitutional.
Somali President Mohamed Abdullah Mohamed (Farmaajo) signed a controversial law on Wednesday, April 14, extending his term of office for two years, which expires on February 8. A text that particularly worries the international community.
The president has “After unanimously passed by the parliament, a special resolution was issued to guide the country’s elections” On Monday, Radio Mogadishu reported. The Speaker of the Upper House of Somalia voted in the People’s Chamber of the Lower House of the Federal Assembly on Monday to not pass the constitution, and the resolution has not been passed in the Upper House. This is a legislative procedure.
The head of European foreign affairs Josep Borrel (Josep Borrel) has estimated on Tuesday that the resolution will be passed “The division of Somalia causes further delays and poses a serious threat to the peace and stability of Somalia and its neighbors”.At the same time, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken judged her on Twitter “Further undermined the peace and security of the country” And called “Somali Federal Government and Federal States resume talks”.
This law violates an agreement reached between President Famacho and five regional leaders on September 17, which provided for indirect elections before the end of his term.The treaty abandoned “One person, one voice”This is an ambitious goal. Somalia has set itself to hold fully democratic elections for the first time since 1969, but has fallen due to multiple political differences, especially for security reasons.
However, this process based on indirect suffrage also led to a deadlock, and regional leaders and the president blamed each other for this. In recent weeks, international agencies have called for dialogue to prevent this particularly unstable country from falling into chaos.
