Abdirahman Abdishakur Warsame, considered to be one of the vocal politician opposing the current FGS leaders, have expressed concerns about perceived ongoing effort to approve the draft National Electoral Law, that is being processed by the House of the People, including the divisive Article 56 that allows possible extension of mandate.
Article 56 of the National Electoral Law, dictates that in cases where it is impossible for the country to hold election, the term of office of the president and that of parliament will be extended until a time election can takes place.
According to Abdirahman, some MPs are campaigning for parliament term extension.
