H.E Vice President Abdurrahman Abdullah Ismael “Saylic today announced that the ongoing consultative meeting between the government and the three political organizations on how to resolve and find a solution on the outstanding issues on the timeline of the upcoming Presidential and Parliamentary elections shall resume next Monday after the concerned parties failed to reach a settlement.

Earlier this month on 11 May 2015, the house of Elders “Guurti”, during an extra ordinary session, overwhelmingly voted for a 21 month extension two-year extension of the current government’s term, including a further postponement of the presidential and parliamentary elections due this June.

The ruling Kulmiye party, and the smaller of the two opposition parties, Justice and Welfare party (UCID), had bilaterally agreed to extend the government until 15 November 2016 this appears to have emboldened the Guurti to announce a further extension and poll postponement to April 2017.
