President Farmajo, Madobe and Deni to hold meeting today in Mogadishu

President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo is today expected to hold meeting with the leaders of Jubbaland and Puntland states, Ahmed Mohamed Madobe and Saed Abdullahi Deni respectively, bringing an end to days of deadlock.

Sources in Villa Somalia confirmed that the leaders will have face to face meeting to address their differences over a number of issues.

As per the plan, the leaders were to meet last Wednesday but due hard conditionality set by the leader of jubbaland, the meeting was cancelled.

The sources now say part of the stalemate was resolved, leading the leaders agree to meet to iron out other issues including the upcoming elections.

Puntland and Jubbbaland leaders previously opposed a new agreement reached last month to have elections conducted via a system known as constituency caucuses, which could improve on the traditional.

According to a communique in Dhusameeb last Month, president Farmajo and leaders of Galmudug, Hirshabelle and Southwest states agreed each Caucus of 301 delegates will elect each MP.

The agreement stipulates that delegates will be nominated jointly by national and federal state electoral bodies.

The agreement indicates that deal will have to be approved by House of the People of Parliament.
