Prime Minister Roble announces opening date for National Consultative Assembly1 min read
Somali Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble has sent an official invitation to the leaders of the National Consultative Assembly to attend a conference on December 27th in Mogadishu.
A statement from the Prime Minister’s Office said the meeting would focus on speeding up the process, streamlining and completing the country’s elections.
A meeting of the National Consultative Assembly is set to come up with proposals to reform the country’s electoral process, which has been marred by widespread corruption in some administrations.
Roble’s invitation to state leaders comes at a time when the opposition has boycotted the country’s elections, particularly the House of Representatives, which they described as rigged.
Roble had earlier promised to convene a meeting of the National Consultative Assembly, following meetings with the opposition who demanded a complete suspension of the election, until corrections were made.
The National Consultative Assembly comprising of the Prime Minister, Heads of State and the Governor of Benadir region is currently tasked with restoring the lost confidence in the country’s elections.
