Somaliland Opposition Reject President Bihi´s Term Extension
Somaliland opposition party has rejected the decision of the Somaliland Senate to extend President Bihi’s term of office by 2 years.
The presidential candidate of the Wadani Party, Abdirahman Mohamed Abdillahi Irro, who spoke to the media in Hargeisa, said that the decision of the Senate is not legal and they do not accept it.
“I am telling the international community, which loves the unity of Somaliland and its dialogue, that the decision of the Senate is not based on the constitution and the rules in force, therefore the Waddani party considers the decision illegal and we do not support it,” said Candidate Iro.
“If Muse Bihi doesn’t hold the election, if he rejects the various delegations of sheikhs, if he rejects a solution that comes through consultation… the Wadani party will never accept an illegal term extension,” added Iro.
He said that any problem arising from the decision of the senate will be held by the president of Somaliland, adding that they will use every possible way to force the government to hold the impeachment election.
