US Government announced to take action if Somalia misses a new election
The US is prepared to take measures against spoilers if the new National Consultative Council timeline is not met,” the State Department’s Africa bureau said in a Twitter post.
On Wednesday the United States brandished the threat of sanctions if troubled Somalia misses its latest deadline for elections.
Somali leaders on Sunday announced that elections that were due to be concluded last year will take place by February 25.
World powers have voiced fear that election delays, as well as the ongoing feud between Farmajo and Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble, could set off new troubles for a country that has lacked stable governance for three decades.
