Somalia‘s President Mohamed Abdullah Farmaajo signed a bill that enables him to stay in his post and the legislative council for additional two years.
Osman Abu Bakr Doubi, Acting Minister of Information, pointed out that the Somali President inked the bill named as “directive of the Elections” that was ratified by the majority at the legislative council.
These developments came on the backdrop of deep disputes between political blocs in the country that make mounting the elections is impossible.
On the other hand, Farmaajo decreed to strip General Sadiq Goon, former Director of Security of Mogadishu of his military rank and other rights.
The Somali President accused Goon of attempting to prevent convening the legislative council last Monday to ratify the extension in terms of the president and parliament.
Farmaajo considered the behavior of Goon as a danger threatens security and stability in the country.
In response to the decree of extending the presidential term, the National Forum for Salvation that comprises the outgoing President of the Senate Abdy Hashi Abdullah, Federation of Candidates to the Presidency, and the Politician descendants from Somaliland, held a meeting and said that the president’s decree is null.
They warn that such a decree threatens the security, stability, and unity of the Somali people.
Members of the forum pledge to take all available steps to challenge this illegal extension of the term of the president and the legislative council.
The angry politicians depicted what has been decided by Faramago as the kidnapping of the country and they called for finding congruous solutions during the transition period.
They also vowed to consult with different sectors of the people to mobilize national support.
In another context, the United States of America expressed disappointment for the extension of the presidential and parliamentarian terms.
Anthony Blinken, US Secretary of State, said yesterday, Tuesday, that when that bill enters into effect it will lead to dangerous obstacles and deteriorate peace and security in Somalia.
