Impending Disastrous Dictatorship in Somalia Under Watch of International

Somalia’s election deadlock: A disaster of state

The EU can unblock the so-called “electoral impasse” paralyzing Somalia by rejecting the involvement of the outgoing president. But it must also set out a new framework to help the country move forward. The four-year term of Somalia’s president, Mohamed Abdullahi Farmaajo, formally ended last week – but he has refused to leave the office. With the federal parliament’s mandate also expired as of December 2020, Somalia now, for all intents and purposes, lacks legitimate effective national government. Farmaajo argues that…

Politically motivated diplomatic agitation: Somalia accuses

This isn't the primary time Somalia has made such allegations in opposition to Kenya, but it surely comes at a time of political and energy transition as nationwide elections loom and the timeline of the controversial Election Fee is late. Somalia and Kenya have political, financial and safety ties that date again to colonial instances. Somalis dwell on the fringes of the border between the 2 nations, making their ties enduring for hundreds of years to return. Lately, political tensions have arisen between the 2…
