Somalia’s international partners call for restraint and dialogue and a renewed focus on elections

3

Mogadishu – Somalia International partners are deeply concerned about the current situation and political developments. We urge Somalia’s leaders to put the country’s interests first, to reduce rising political tensions and to refrain from provocation or the use of force that could undermine peace and stability.

International Partners- African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM), Belgium, Canada, Egypt, Ethiopia, European Union (EU), Finland, France, Germany, Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), Ireland, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Netherlands, Norway, Qatar, Sudan, Sweden, Uganda, the United Kingdom, the United States and the United Nations have repeatedly expressed growing concern about procedural irregularities and delays in the Somali electoral process. It is imperative that the agreements of 17 September 2020 and 27 May 2021, which form the basis of the election, be implemented immediately without further distraction or disruption.

A meeting of the National Advisory Council as soon as possible, together with other consultations with key stakeholders, is needed as soon as possible to speed up and improve the process and bring the election to a speedy and credible end that will enjoy the confidence of the Somali people.
