Addis Ababa, 4 February 2014 (WIC) - The Special Representative of the Chairperson of the African Union Commission (SRCC) for Somalia, Ambassador Mahamat Saleh Annadif has taken note of the evolving political situation in Baidoa and reiterates AMISOM’s commitment to supporting the Federal Government whose mandate is to take lead in the formation of the federal states in accordance with the Provisional Federal Constitution and enabling local government act.

According to a press relase AMISOM sent to WIC, two parallel political processes are on-going in Baidoa leading to the formation of the federal state comprising of the 6 and 3 regions. Delegates supporting the establishment of the 6 regions state held an election against the Federal Government of Somalia’s guidance. The likelihood for rival leadership emerging with the potential to cause conflict and undermine the Government and AMISOM military expansion and stabilization activities is real.

“AMISOM is more than ready to promote dialogue within its mandate, Somalia’s constitution and the Addis Ababa agreement of 28th August 2013, and will work with all stakeholders to resolve the current political differences for positive settlement.” said Ambassador Annadif

He called on all parties in Baidoa to observe peace, security and stability in the circumstances and open dialogue with all Somali stakeholders to resolve the current political differences in favor of positive settlement, in line with the relevant framework.
