US expresses concerns about delays in Somali electoral process

WASHINGTON, May 21 (KUNA) — The United States is increasingly concerned about delays in the 2016 Somali electoral process, the State Department said on Friday.
The Federal Government of Somalia, Somali parliament and regional leaders have repeatedly voiced their commitment to hold an electoral process on schedule, in accordance with the Somali constitution and resolutions of the UN Security Council, said the statement from deputy department spokesman Mark Toner.
“The continuing legitimacy of Somali federal institutions depends on Somalia’s leaders following through with a transparent political transition prior to the expiration of the current government’s mandate,” Toner said. “We call on the federal parliament to act swiftly to enact and implement the National Leaders Forum-endorsed electoral model.” (end) rm.gta
