Somali politicians warned not to undermine elections


Somalia’s President Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed, who is also known as Farmajo, has warned politicians to avoid any moves that could undermine the security of ongoing parliamentary elections.

In a statement, he urged Somali leaders to focus on completing the elections and resolving any disputes through dialogue.

His comments came hours after Prime Minister Mohamed Roble gave African Union envoy Francisco Madeira 48 hours to leave Somalia.

The president rejected the move, saying his office had  “received no complaints of interference [in Somalia’s] sovereignty” and did not endorse any illegal action against Madeira.
