NAIROBI, Somalia Jun 19 2012 (Garowe Online) – Signatories
of the Roadmap are scheduled to meet in Nairobi
to discuss the progress of ending the transitional government in Somalia, Radio
Transitional Federal Government (TFG) President Sharif
Sheikh Ahmed, Prime Minister Abdiweli Mohamed Gaas, Speaker of Parliament
Sharif Hassan Sharif Adan, Galmudug President Mohamed Ahmed Alim, Puntland
President Abdirahman Mohamed Farole and Ahlu Sunnah are scheduled to meet in Nairobi.
Prime Minister Gaas departed from Mogadishu on Tuesday to the Kenyan capital to
take part in the meeting scheduled to convene on Wednesday.
Puntland President Farole also departed to Nairobi
leading a delegation that was on an official visit to Ethiopia. The
Puntland delegation included Minister of Internal Affairs Gen. Abdullahi Ahmed (Ilkajir),
Minister of Education Abdi Farah Juha and other Puntland officials.
The signatories will discuss if measures to finish the
transition on time have been completed.
According to the Addis
which was agreed on by signatories
of the Roadmap, issues like the selection of the National Constituent
Assembly (NCA) who will vote on adopting the constitution were scheduled to be completed
by the 20th of June.
On Monday Prime Minister Gaas asked traditional elders to
speed up the selection process of the NCA. Fears of more setbacks have caused
leaders to pressure traditional elders for quicker results.
However, analysts say that setbacks are due to the fact that
the elders have been tasked with a whole lot.
Not only are they slated to
choose the 825 representatives of the NCA, but along with a protocol committee will
select the federal parliament’s upper and lower house which constitutes for close
to 300 representatives.
