Puntland leader receives UN envoy in Garowe city
The president of Somalia’s semi-autonomous region of Puntland state Abdiweli Mohamed Ali Gaas has met today UN envoy for Somalia Micheal Keating in Garowe.
The UN envoy and his delegation has been welcomed in style at Garowe airport by Puntland president Abdiweli Mohamed Ali Gaas and other top officials.
Reports said both sides have held a meeting at Puntland’s presidential compound in Garowe, and discussed a range of issues related to the forthcoming Somali election.
The UN envoy has urged Puntland president to swiftly submit the list of the upper house lawmakers in the given two-day deadline, to avoid further delay in election.
Former Puntland president Abdirahman Farole who recently announced his candidacy for president in the coming election is likely to appear in upper house MPs.
