President Bihi Commits to Hold Presidential Elections On Time

The President of the Republic of Somaliland HE Muse Bihi Abdi, who has been addressing an accusation from the opposition parties that he is seeking an extension, has stated that “Elections will be held on time”. In addition, he responded to allegations from opposition party leaders that President Bihi may be using the opening of the political parties and association as a pretext for term extension.

Attending the unveiling event of the new Center for Underground Water Management , President Bihi briefly spoke of the fluid situation in Somalia and accused Farmajo of bringing Somalia back to the brink once more but contrasted that situation with the ongoing debate regarding Law Number 14 and the opening of political parties and associations and said “Ours is different in that we are debating which path works” and directly responding to threats from the two chairmen of Waddani and UCID stated that it is impossible for Somaliland to have two Presidents.

Somalia has entered another tumultuous political state following a statement from the Ex-President Mohamed Abdillahi Farmajo to strip the Prime Minister of his powers over corruption allegation and an attempt this morning to prevent him from accessing his office. As a result, Somalia’s Prime Minister Mr. Mohamed Roble has issuing a decree that all orders from the Ex-President should be ignored.

The United States and other donor countries have issued a barrage of statements regarding the tense political state in Somalia.

The dispute that arouse from Law Number 14 is currently with the constitutional court of Somaliland for interpretation and ensuring that it does not conflict with existing constitutionally mandated Presidential and Senate elections next year.
