UNSOM calls for swift implementation of NCC outcome

The United Mission in Somalia has called for the speedy implementation of the National Consultative Council meeting outcome that concluded in Moqadishu after six days of talks that at some point threatened to derail the meeting following recommendations by Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble to take over National security leading to a division among the council with four of the members-Ahmed Qoorqoor of Galmudug, his Hirshabelle counterpart Ali Gudlawe, South West State President Abdiaziz Lafta-Garen and Banadir governor Omar Filish downplaying the bid. The UN in a statement posted on their Twitter handle on Monday urged for swift implementation of the decisions to pilot the country through the protracted ongoing stalled Lower House elections marred by widespread claims of malpractices and riggings by different quarters.
  • "1/2) The @UN in #Somalia is pleased the #NCC reached consensus to clarify #electoral procedures and expedite the House of the People #elections - the priority now is to implement these decisions to achieve a credible and widely-accepted result by the new deadline of 25 February" read the statement.
The National Consultative Council Assembly on Sunday released 18 points communique geared towards the acceleration of the elections and reinforcement of the security of the presidential palace by deploying more AMISOM forces to Villa Somalia to diffuse tension as rival forces loyal to president Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo and Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble continued to occupy at the rooftops of the offices of the two men risking a breakout of fierce fighting between the factions.
