Somalia’s main opposition group Forum for National Parties has welcomed the election model agreement reached between the leadership of the federal government and regional state leaders.
In a statement, the Forum for National Parties (FNP) said it backs the agreement in the interest of peace and stability in the horn of the African nation.
“The coalition welcomes the election modality agreement reached by the FGS and FMS. The FNP underscores its firm belief that the peaceful transition of power through viable election modality is crucial to avoid mandate extension-induced political and constitutional crisis.” Spokesman Ilyas Ali Hassan said.
Meanwhile the leader of another opposition party, Abdirahman Abdishakur has also thrown his back on the new agreement.
He said the new deal creates hope of a peaceful transition of power after the democratic exercise.
The former planning minister called upon the international community to provide necessary support during the implementation process.
