The draft constitution was presented to the 400 plus
delegates and honorable guests who attended the convening of the Jubaland
conference. In attendance guests included former Prime Minister Omar Abdirashid
Ali who thanked the convention organizers for inviting him and was optimistic that
the state building process would end in success.

constitution and will return to raise the concerns. After the discussion
process the 25 member technical committee will return with another draft that
will be put to a vote.

Minister Shirdon and Ministers from the Somali Federal Government (SFG) arrived
in Kismayo last week.
Although the SFG disagreed with the Jubaland state process,
the state building convention has continued to resume in the port city of Kismayo.
