SOMALIA’S CONSTITUTIONAL IMPASSE

Quiz: Why did Somali National Reconciliation Conference (SNRC) in Mbagati, Kenya, to produce the Transitional Federal Government (TFG) take over two years (2002-2004) to conclude?

There was disagreement and impasse on the TFG Constitutional Charter of 2004. Some delegates to the Mbagati SNRC wanted the constitution of 1960 in which there was only 8 Regional Administrations in Somalia, and a strong Central Government with Mogadishu as the Centre of all socio-economic influence and activities. Is that feasible in Post Civil War Somalia? Since then, there is a struggle still going-on on Somalia’s constitution. That is why there is a resistance today towards implementing the Federal System finally agreed upon 15 years ago.

Know the facts. Make your voice heard and your opinion counted.
