Somalia: 2 aspirants go to 3rd round of Somali presidential elections

Two candidates will vie for the third round of Somalia’s presidential elections in Mogadishu on Wednesday, after a second ballot failed to give any candidate the two-thirds majority required for outright victory.

Hassan Sheikh Mohammud, the incumbent president, gained 97 votes in the second round of the elections and  Mohmed Farmajo got 186.

According to election organizers, in the likely event of candidate obtaining the majority of the ballot, the top will be the president.

Since the breakdown of the Somali central government in 1991, conflict and famine have killed hundreds of thousands of people, plunging the country into anarchy.
