JOINT AU-IGAD STATEMENT ON THE RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IN SOMALIA
Addis Ababa , 25 July 2020. The African Union Commission and IGAD take note of the
vote of no confidence passed by the House of the People on the administration of Prime
Minister Hassan Ali Khaire.
The African Union Commission and IGAD further take note that this vote comes after the
Federal Government of Somalia (FGS) and Federal Member States (FMS) leaders
reached an agreement in Dhusamareb to form a technical committee on election
modalities for the 2020 national elections.
The African Union Commission and IGAD urge Somali leaders to show unity of purpose,
commit to the agreements reached in Dhusamareb and respect the agreed timelines in
line with the Provisional Federal Constitution. They further underscore the importance of
ensuring that the agreed electoral model that will emerge from the technical committee is
underpinned by broad based consensus involving parliament, political parties, civil society
and other Somali stakeholders.
The African Union Commission and IGAD call on the FGS to continue to advance the
implementation of other key priorities including security sector reform, the fight against Al
Shabaab, the Constitutional Review, the Judicial Services Commission, Human Right
Commission and the Constitutional Court. They further called for the sustained intergovernmental engagement between the Federal Government and the Federal Member
States.
The African Union Commission and IGAD stress the need for all stakeholders to exercise
restraint and avoid any action that may lead to instability.
