An African Union pre-election mission has pledged support for political process in Somalia as the Horn of Africa nation heads to elections next month.

The team, which arrived in Mogadishu on a fact-finding mission on Monday, pledged more support from the African Union, to the AU Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) to help stabilize the Horn of Africa nation.

"We want to support this particular electoral process, but then beyond that, we need to develop institutional capacity, that then gives the state the capability to be able to run itself," said Olabisi Dare, the Head of the AU Humanitarian Division in the Political Department, of the AU Commission and leader of the delegation.

In a statement issued by AMISOM on Wednesday at the end of their-day mission in Somalia said the four-member pre-election assessment team said there was need to back security with political support to ensure stability. 

"For overall security in Somalia, there is need to have the political element to support and give more permanent nature the security that is created by AMISOM," Dare said.
