Photos: National Consultation Conference opens in Mogadishu

1 min read

The capital city of Somalia today formally hosted the National Consultative Assembly, which is set to accelerate the country’s parliamentarians and presidential elections for 2021.

The crucial meeting will be chaired by the Prime Minister of Somalia, HE Mohamed Hussein Roble, and will be attended by leaders of the country’s regional administrations as well as the Governor of Benadir region and Mayor of Mogadishu.

The opening of the conference was hotly debated, after HirShabelle President Ali Gudlawe boycotted the conference but finally resolved with him now attending the conference via Zoom, while in Turkey.

The main issues discussed at the meeting include consultation on the delay in the agreement for the provision of certain capitals to host parliamentarian elections.

Also discussed are the implications of the May 27th agreement on the country’s electoral process.

Security has been tightened in the capital today, with the meeting taking place at the heavily guarded Afisyoni tent in Halane camp.

With the current governments mandate expired and in overtime, Somalia is still in a state of transition, and parliamentary and presidential elections will be underway once this consultative forum between the Prime Minister and federal state leaders is finalized.
