Mogadishu (WAAGACUSUB ) - Somalia's international partners on Tuesday welcomed the announcement by the parliamentary organizing committee that the election of the President will take place on Sunday, 15 May 2022. We are encouraged by the positive progress in registering presidential candidates and other preparations for this electoral deadline to be met," they said in a joint statement.

"There is no justification for any further delay.  With both chambers of Parliament sworn in and fully functional, any outstanding electoral issue should be resolved by the duly elected parliamentary leaders", they added.

The partners urged Somalia's leaders to conclude this final stage of the electoral process swiftly, peacefully, and credibly so that attention can turn to domestic and state-building priorities.

Thirty-two candidates have registered their candidacy for the Somali presidency, with 22 presidential hopefuls - including President Farmajo -  registering on Mondayā€ˇ.

It is the highest number of presidential candidates in Somalia's history.
