Puntland’s President was in Mogadishu for electoral talks that collapsed following disagreements on the agendas discussed.
President Deni was conciliatory in an interview with Dalsan TV.
He dropped the demand that non-stakeholders should participate in the electoral talks.
The Puntland Government has not issued a statement on the mandate extension for federal institutions justified on grounds of ending the political uncertainty in the country.
Sources close to the Puntland State Government have told the Puntland Post that President Deni would make an unconditional offer to sign the 17 September electoral model, which might break the deadlock over elections if the Federal Government of Somalia resolves to return to electoral talks as demanded by Somalia’s International Partners.
