Somalia: Leaders accept roadmap for elections

[AEP] Somalia’s political leaders, on Thursday, agreed on a roadmap to organise elections this year after 2 days of intense discussions in the capital, Mogadishu.

The election is expected to bring peace and stability to the long-stressed East African country. The agreement will lead to the creation of an upper house of parliament which has 54 seats apportioned among Somalia's states.

Meanwhile, a power-sharing system will be used share the current 275 seats in the lower house of parliament among the country's 4 main clans and the smaller ones using the 4.5 formula. 30% of all seats will be reserved for women. This upcoming parliament, when created, will select a president to replace incumbent Hassan Sheikh Mohamud who has been in office since 2012.

Dates for the elections are yet to be given.
