The international community has welcomed the election of the Speaker and Deputies of the Upper House, which on Tuesday happened in Mogadishu, and called on Somali leaders to compete for elections peacefully.
In a joint press release, Somalia’s international partners said that credible polls must be completed so that Somalia can address the problems that lay ahead.

"After the long delays already experienced in Somalia’s electoral process, recent political tensions and security incidents must not be permitted to disrupt its final stages. We urge all Somali leaders to exercise restraint, resolve differences through compromise, and avoid escalation of any incidents. Somalia’s urgent focus must be to conclude the electoral process calmly and credibly so that duly elected leaders can address key national priorities.”

On Tuesday, Abdi Hashi Abdullahi was re-elected as the Speaker of the Upper House, and Ali Shaban was elected the First Deputy of the House. Meanwhile, Tima’ade was elected as the Second Deputy of the Speaker of the Upper House.

Lawmakers are arriving at the Afisiyooni tent in Mogadishu on Wednesday morning, where the election of Lower House leadership is to expected take place. But there is uncertainty over where the election could take place today.
