AMISOM supports Somalia Government stand on Baidoa conferences

Mareeg.com-Mogadishu, 3rd March 2014 **- The Special Representative of the Chairperson of the
African Union Commission (SRCC) for Somalia, Ambassador Mahamat Saleh Annadif has
taken note of the evolving political situation in Baidoa and reiterates AMISOM’s
commitment to supporting the Federal Government whose mandate is to take lead in the
formation of the federal states in accordance with the Provisional Federal
Constitution and enabling local government act.

Two parallel political processes are on-going in Baidoa leading to the formation of
the federal state comprising of the 6 and 3 regions. Delegates supporting the
establishment of the 6 regions state held an election against the Federal Government
of Somalia’s guidance. The likelihood for rival leadership emerging with the
potential to cause conflict and undermine the Government and AMISOM military
expansion and stabilization activities is real.

settlement.” said Ambassador Annadif

He called on all parties in Baidoa to observe peace, security and stability in the
circumstances and open dialogue with all Somali stakeholders to resolve the current
political differences in favor of positive settlement, in line with the relevant
framework.
