After the world outcryb against the Somali parliament’s hast decision to extend their term by three years, Somali MPs say they have discussed the international community's opposition to the extension and would file legal action against the U.N envoy for Somalia for leading disapproval.

Speaking to the reporters in Mogadishu on Tuesday, Abdalla Ahmed, one Somalia’s corrupt MPs says that they had a common stance against the UN special envoy to Somalia and would soon table a motion in parliament against him.

He slammed Augustine Mahiga, the UN special envoy to Somalia, for poking his nose into what is none of ‘’his business’’.

One of the latest country criticized the parliament’s move is France, which said it regrets the unilateral decision made by the Transitional Federal Parliament.

In a statement, French foreign ministry says, Discussions on post-transition arrangements must indeed be an opportunity for open political dialogue, avoiding a situation in which particular institutions take unilateral positions.
“It is essential that the transitional institutions (president, government and Parliament) demonstrate their credibility by acting in a responsible way in the interests of the people, whose needs are immense”

“France reaffirms its confidence in the Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General, Mr. Mahiga, in his efforts towards promoting dialogue”

“France, together with its European Union partners, will undertake an assessment of its support for the Somali institutions by August”

Somalia has been without government since 1991 after dictator Mohamed Siad Barre was overthrown by armed warlords that turned the horn of Africa into an endless decades of war.
