JOINT PRESS STATEMENT: International community urges rapid resolution to crisis created by impeachment motion against President of the Federal Republic of Somalia

Keywords : Declarations Human and trade union rights Somalia

Mogadishu, 19 August 2015: As concerned partners of the Somali people, the envoys of the United Nations, the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM), the Inter-Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD), the European Union (EU), the United States of America and the United Kingdom express their deep concern that the parliamentary motion to impeach President Hassan Sheikh Mohamoud will impede progress on Somalia’s peace and state building goals.

“While we fully respect the right of the Federal Parliament to hold institutions to account and to fulfil its constitutional duties, the submission of any such motion requires a high standard of transparency and integrity in the process and will consume extremely valuable time, not least in the absence of essential legal bodies.
We also recall that Somalia and all member states are bound by United Nations Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 2232, which sets out the expectations of the international community on the security and political progress needed in Somalia, and the need for an electoral process in 2016 without extension of either the legislative or executive branch.
While recognising the progress that has been made in Somalia in recent years, especially on federalism, and also recognising the important and courageous contribution made by the Federal Parliament, often at great human cost, we remain concerned about progress on the legislative agenda and the need to pass key legislation including laws on elections, citizenship, political parties’ and the constitutional court. Emerging institutions are still fragile. They require a period of stability and continuity to allow Somalia to benefit from the New Deal Somali Compact and to prepare for a peaceful and legitimate transfer of public office in 2016.
In 2014 international partners advocated consistently for political stability and continuity, respect for institutional roles defined within the constitution and strong measures to tackle corruption and improve public financial management, including in the security and defence sector. In 2015 this remains our firm call.
We are determined to assist the Somali people in preparing for an electoral process in 2016 that will not be dominated by any single institution or stakeholder. The exact choice of electoral process, will be made by Somalis following a national consultative process, in which the executive, legislative, regional administrations as well as civil society across the country will participate. We note that both the Executive and Members of Parliament have endorsed the proposed Action Plan for the national consultative process.
We believe the Somali people should be given the opportunity to hold their elected representatives and government to account in 2016 through an inclusive and transparent electoral process.
We call on the Somali federal institutions to maintain their unity and cohesion during this challenging period and focus on priorities Somalis have set for themselves: (a) the preparation of the electoral process in 2016; (b) the formation of federal member states and the constitutional review process, which are vital for stabilisation, governance and state-building; and (c) the fight against Al Shabaab, which is at a crucial juncture, thanks to the support and sacrifice of Somali national security forces, the African Union and partners.”

Beesha caalamka oo ku baaqday in si degdeg ah loo xalliyo xasaradda uu abuuray mooshinka xil ka qaadidda laga keenay Madaxweynaha Jamhuuriyadda Federaalka Soomaaliya

Muqdisho, 19 Agoosto 15: Iyagoo ah saaxiibada dadka Soomaaliyeed oo ka walaacsan xaaladda, ayaa danjireyaasha Qaramada Midoobay, Hawlgalka Midowga Afrika ee Soomaaliya (AMISOM), Urur-Goboleedka IGAD, Midowga Yurub (EU), Dowladda Maraykanka iyo Boqortooyada Midowday ee Ingiriiska (UK) waxay muujinayaan inay aad uga welwelsanyihiin in mooshinka Baarlamaanka ee lagu doonayo in xilka looga qaado Madaxweyne Xasan Sheekh Maxamuud uu carqaladeeyo horumarka Soomaaliya ay gaarayso yoolalka nabadda iyo dowlad dhisidda.

“Inkastoo aan si buuxda u qadarinayno xaqa uu Baarlamaanka Federaalku u leeyahay inuu la xisaabtamo hay’adaha sidaana ku guto waajibaadkiisa dastuur, gudbinta mooshin caynkan oo kale ah waxay u baahantahay daahfurnaan aad u heer sarreysa iyo hanaanka loo maro oo hufanaato, waxayna qaadan doontaa waqti aad qaali u ah, gaar ahaan marka ay meesha ka maqanyihiin hay’ado sharci oo lagama maarmaan ah.

Waxaan sidoo kale xusuusanaa in Soomaaliya iyo dhammaan dowladaha xubnaha ka ah Qaramada Midoobay uu waajib ka saaranyahay inay raacaan Qaraarka Golaha Amaanka Qaramada Midoobay ee tirsigiisu yahay 2232, oo qeexaya rajada beesha caalamka ee amniga iyo horumarka siyaasadeed ee loo baahanyahay in laga gaaro Soomaaliya, iyo baahida loo qabo hanaan doorasho ee loo dejiyo sannadka 2016ka iyadoo aan xilka loo kordhinin laamaha sharcidejinta iyo fulintaba.

Inkastoo aan aqoonsanahay horumarka sannadihii la soo dhaafay laga gaaray Soomaaliya, gaar ahaan dhanka federaalka, iyo annago sidoo kalena aqoonsan kaalinta muhimka ah oo geesinimada leh ee uu ka geystay Baarlamaanka Federaalka, iyadoo inta badana khasaare badana ay dadka ka soo gaarto, waxaan weli ka welwelsanahay horumarka ka socda ajendaha sharcidejinta iyo baahida loo qabo in la ansaxiyo shuruuc muhim ah, oo ay ka midyihiin shuruucda doorashada, muwaadinimada, xisbiyada siyaasadda iyo maxkamadda dastuurka. Hay’adaha sameysmayana waa kuwo weli liita. Waxay u baahanyihiin muddo xasilloon iyo hawsha oo sii socota si loogu ogolaado Soomaaliya inay ka fa’iideysato Barnaamijka Heshiiska Soomaaliya ee Hiigsiga Cusub iyo inay isu diyaariso xilka dowladda oo la wareejiyo sannadka 2016.

Sannadkii 2014, saaxiibada caalamku waxay si joogta ah ugu ololeeyeen xasilloonida siyaasadda iyo sii socodka hawsha, ixtiraamka kaalimaha ay hay’aduhu kala leeyihiin sida ku qeexan dastuurka iyo tallaabooyin xoog leh ee wax looga qabto musuqmaasuqa laguna horumariyo maareynta maaliyadda guud, oo ay ka midyihiin dhinacyada amniga iyo difaaca. Sannadkan 2015kana, mawqifkeena waa sidiisii oo waan ku adkeysaneynaa, ismana bedelin.

Waxaa naga go’an inaan dadka Soomaaliyeed ku kaalmeyno isu diyaarinta geeddi socod doorasho ee dhacda sannadka 2016 oo aan hay’ad keligeed ama cid kale oo ay arrintu khuseyso ku amartaagleyneynin. Hanaanka doorasho ee dhab ahaan loo dooran doono waxaa isla qaadan doona dadka Soomaaliyeed ka dib maka la maro hanaan wadatashi, ee ay ka wada qaybqaataan laamaha fulinta, sharcidejinta iyo maamul goboleedyada iyo weliba bulshada rayidka dalkoo idil. Waxaan ka warhaynaa in laanta Fulinta (Xukuumadda) iyo Xildhibaanada Baarlamaanka labaduba ay ogolaadeen Qorshe Hawleedka la soo jeediyay ee hanaanka wadatashiga qaran.

Waxaan rumeysanahay in dadka Soomaaliyeed la siiyo fursad ay wakiilladooda la soo doortay, oo ay ka midyihiin Madaxweynaha iyo Xildhibaanada Baarlamaanka, kula xisaabtamaan sannadka 2016ka, iyagoo u maraya hanaan doorasho oo daahfuran oo loo wada dhanyahay.

Waxaan ugu baaqaynaa hay’adaha federaalka Soomaaliyeed inay ilaaliyaan midnimadooda iyo isku xirnaantooda inta lagu jiro xilligan adag, ayna diiradda saaraan arrimada mudnaanta leh ee ay dadka Soomaaliyeed dejisteen: (a) diyaarinta hanaanka doorasho ee sannadka 2016ka; (b) sameynta maamul-goboleedyada xubnaha ka ah dowladda federaalka iyo hanaanka dib u eegidda dastuurka, oo muhim u ah xasilinta, maamulka iyo dowlad-dhisidda; iyo (c) la dagaallanka Al-Shabaab, oo maraya meel xasaasi ah, mahadi ha ka gaartee taageerada iyo dadaalka ay naftooda u hurayaan ciidamada amaanka qaranka Soomaaliyeed, Midowga Afrika iyo saxiibada kale.”
