Somalia’s PM Vows Accountability For Anyone Who Violates Election Transparency

Somali PM Mohamed Hussein Roble

MOGADISHU (Somaliguardian) – Somalia’s Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble vowed that anyone who violates election transparency would be held accountable, in an effort to soothe opposition concerns, his spokesman Mohamed Ibrahim Moalimu said on Sunday.

It came hours after the Somali Premier held meeting with members of the Council of Presidential Candidates, a conglomerate of opposition parties, in which both sides discussed mounting election fraud and manipulation allegations.

Roble said he would convene meetings with leaders of the National Consultative Council and electoral bodies to discuss ways to “correct existing mistakes” and ensure that credible polls agreeable to all sides take place in the country, Moalimu added.

Local media reports indicated on Sunday that the opposition figures urged the Prime Minister to delay the Lower House election in order to review its procedures and address complaints over seats won by president Farmajo’s allies without fair contest.
