Prime Minister Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed Threatens to not Resign

The Accord was reached by President Sharif Sheikh Ahmed and Speaker Sharif Hassan Sheikh Aden during the International Contact Group meeting on Somali, held in Kampala after a five-month long power dispute. The Accord postpones elections for another year but requires the resignation of the Prime Minister.

On Thursday, June 9, large crowds took to the streets in protest of the agreement and in support of the Prime Minister. Now Mr. Mohamed says he won't resign unless Parliament approves the Accord.

Analysts believe that the Parliament has the right to approve or reject the Accord before implementation. But, rejection will pave the way for more political bickering and prolonged impasse which the international community does not want.
