#SOMALIA: President Seeks Extended Term In Office Sparks Tensions

[world politics news]

Pres. Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed's April attempt to extend his term by two years has ignited political tensions in Somalia.

The government of Somalia and a number of its federal states have been holding critical talks since May 22 to help resolve the country’s political crisis.

The African Union (AU), meanwhile, has been spearheading international efforts in Somalia. This is despite the fact that the Somali government has rejected the AU’s special envoy, former president John Dramani Mahama of Ghana.
