Somalia’s PM Mohamed Husein Roble on Sunday hit back at the President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo for saying his ineptitude has led to the successive delays to the country’s elections and argued that nation’s embattled leader has been stonewalling efforts to hold elections agreeable to all sides.
Roble said in a statement: ” Roble is deeply concerned about a letter issued in this morning by the president’s office. That statement is one that the President is deliberately disrupting the process of the polls, which is at a critical stage.”
The Letter was timed to coincide with a scheduled meeting of the National Consultative Conference, which is intended to address issues on transparency of ongoing elections, in an apparent attempt by the “president to foil the meeting of the council which clearly shows that the president has never become happy and will never be with the conduct of an election agreeable to all the Somali public”, he added.
The PM has also traded accusations that the President is determined to derail the election process and is willing to secure extended stay in power.
