The European Union calls on the President of Somalia to quickly end the political crisis in his country

 The High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy of the European Union, Josep Borrell, called on Somali President Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed and Prime Minister Hussein Robley to quickly end the current political crisis in the country.

Borrell said, in a press statement published on his official website, today, Saturday, that the electoral process in Somalia should proceed peacefully, according to its previously agreed timetable on May 27, given that this matter is the key to the well-being of the population in Somalia.

"All Somali stakeholders must exercise maximum restraint for the sake of overall stability in the country and in the entire region," he added.

Somali President Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed, nicknamed "Farmago," decided to withdraw the executive powers from Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Robley, in a new chapter of the political tensions currently taking place in Somalia, while the latter declared that the decision was "illegal and baseless."

Farmajo has held the presidency since 2017, and his term expired on February 8 without being able to agree with the regional leaders to organize the elections, which caused a serious constitutional crisis, while the announcement of extending his term in mid-April for two years led to clashes in Mogadishu that revived Memories of decades of civil war in the country after 1991.
