Somalia: PM Gaas says ‘no extension for TFG’

MOGADISHU, somalia Feb 29 2012 (Garowe Online) – Prime Minister Abdiweli Mohamed Gaas has reiterated that the Transitional Federal Government (TFG) of Somalia will come to an end in August 2012, Garowe Online reports.

Prime Minister Gaas who currently is Norway released a press release from Oslo stating that there will be no extension time allotted to the TFG and its officials. “The Somali people and the international community have agreed to the end of the TFG in August, as our previous conferences and agreements have stated and we are currently working on how to complete the transition,” said PM Gaas.

Gaas commended the efforts of the respective leaders to unite and bring the Somali people a functioning government and added that there is hard work ahead of the leaders as a new Parliament will be chosen. “These conferences have brought the Somali people together and dialogue stemming from these meetings has assisted us in drafting and shortly completing a federal and state constitution that will cater to the people,” said Gaas.

The UN backed Transitional Federal Government has been operational for 10 years although its authority has been weak in the past, a surge in military offenses against Al Shabaab have weakened the terrorist group's authority, and a proposed future democratic processes have helped Somalia move toward the end of transitional government.
