FEIT reaffirms commitment for election transparency in Somalia


MOGADISHU [SMN] – Somalia’s national election implementation committee [FEIT] said it would “diligently look at the controversy” regarding ongoing parliamentary efforts. 

“In line with our commitment to hold transparent, free, and fair elections, we reaffirm to all political stakeholders and the Somali citizenry that the commission will diligently look at all grievances and concerns arising from the elected seats so far,” the Federal Election Implementation Team said in a statement.

The election commission said polls are going smoothly, and more than 11 MPs have been elected, including Acting National Intelligence and Security Agency chief Yasin Farey in an election Thursday in Dhusamareb.

Former Parliament Speaker Mohamed Osman Jawaari told reporters in Mogadishu he had been prevented from running for his seat in Southwest state, his constituency.
