The Somali President is hosting a meeting between President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo and the presidents of Puntland and Jubbaland Said Abdullahi Deni and Ahmed Mohamed Islam. The three leaders had previously made an appointment, but it was canceled after Jubaland imposed strict conditions on an agreement reached last night, which led to the meeting being held.
According to Villa Somalia source told Somali Times, this is a meeting that only discusses election issues and how to hold a timely and agreed-upon election.
Said Deni and Ahmed Islam are said to be working on plans to include the Presidents of Hir Shabelle, Galmudug and South west in the later stages of the conference. It is not known whether the Presidents of the other administrations will attend, as Said Deni and Ahmed Islam did not attend the final Dhusamareb third conference.
