Technical Challenges Force Delay of Somalia’s NCC Summit, Federal Government Announces

The National Consultative Council (NCC) summit, initially set to take place in Mogadishu on Saturday, has been postponed by the federal government. This decision came after two regional leaders withdrew from attending the meeting, reports confirm.

A statement released by the Prime Minister’s office cited technical reasons for the summit’s cancellation and announced its postponement for a short period.

Sources indicate that the postponement is a direct consequence of a significant political dispute involving leaders from two regional governments who were previously aligned with the federal government.

The summit aimed to address counter-terrorism efforts and finalize the country’s constitution. However, it’s worth noting that the Puntland regional state had already declined participation in the summit, citing its non-recognition of the federal government.

Mohamud Aydid Dirir, Puntland’s Minister of Information, emphasized that Puntland would only engage in constitutional negotiations if the federal government adhered to legal frameworks.
