Somali Presidential elections might be delayed, source

The Presidential elections scheduled in Somalia on late October might be delayed according to credible sources.

Sources close to electoral commission have confirmed that due to technical issues the election exercise might be pushed back away from the scheduled timetable earlier.

The source said the delay will not me more than two weeks to four weeks.

Election commission press conference received by the media on Wednesday night also suggested possible delay linked to security, political and budget might halt the significant process.

Members of opposition Presidential candidates have earlier doubted the possibility of conducting Presidential elections on time while questioning President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud legality in power saying his constitutional time in office is up.
