African Union encourages Somalis to stay focused on transition during Ramadan
Monday, July 23, 2012
The African Union extended Ramadan greetings to Somalia in a news release Friday (July 20th), encouraging the Somali people to continue making progress in their transition to permanent government.
"This year, Ramadan comes at a momentous period in Somalia's history as the country debates a provisional constitution that will end 12 years of transitional governments and inaugurate a new and more representative political order," said Special Representative of the Chairperson of the African Union Commission for Somalia Boubacar Diarra.
Tribal elders are convening in Mogadishu for the National Constituent Assembly selection conference to select the representatives that will ratify a new constitution.
Diarra said the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) will do its best to maintain aid distribution in the country throughout the month of fasting. "AMISOM is doing all it can to ensure that aid can be safely delivered to the people and we appeal to humanitarian agencies to take advantage of the gains we have made," he said.
