Elders set to intervene in Galmudug political crises

Elders hailing from Galmudug state have held a meeting in Mogadishu on Thursday to discuss the standoff between Galmudug parliament and president Abdikarim Hussein Guled.

Mohamed Hassan Haad, a prominent Elder attended Thursday’s meeting in Mogadishu said they will travel to Adado city, and hold talks with the MPs and Guled to discuss the standoff.

“It is unacceptable and misfortune the ongoing deadlock in Galmudug over the leadership. We, as elders will leave no stone unturned to seek solution for the crises in Adado,” he said.

He urged Galmudug state leaders to end their differences through peaceful dialogue and avoid any kind of violence that could annihilate the newly established fragile administration.

The standoff emerged after several Galmudug lawmakers have lodged a controversial no confidence motion against the current elected president HE Abdikarim Hussein Guled.

The president and parliament speaker have similarly dismissed the motion by the MPs, and termed it as “illegitimate”, and against to the state’s constitution.
