Somali prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble has held talks with international community over the country’s political situation.
During the visual meeting, the premier and Somalia’s partners have jointly commended last week’s talks between federal government and the Council of Presidential Candidates (CPC) which ended some of the contentious issues.
“I had an e-meeting with International partners, discussed the expedition of FGS- FMS negotiations on the implementation of 17 Sep 2020 Electoral Pact & the technical committee recommendations in Baidoa,” PM Role said in a Twitter post. “Meeting commended the Feb 25 deal reached by @SomaliPM & Union of Candidates.”
International community has been pressing Somalia’s political stakeholders to iron out their differences over electoral process.
Mid last month, UN security council members had called on the federal government and its member states to respect and implement 17-Sep electoral process agreement.
Somali government has last week held talks with opposition leaders to end protests declared by the opposition.
The government accepted a demand by opposition to condemn and investigate what happened on 19th of last month when Somali security forces and armed men who are loyal to the opposition during a protest.
