Members of the House of the People Somali parliament are expected to hold a sensitive today at parliament buildings which many said is aimed at extending the term of the current government.

The Speaker of the House of the People has last night sent a message to the members of the House of the People, and a motion on election issues is expected to be presented.

Opposition lawmaker Mohamed Idris Ganey said the speaker of parliament had repeatedly stated that if no agreement was reached, the parliament would extend the term of the current government.

He accused the Speaker of the House of Representatives of being a weapon used by the outgoing Somali President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo to undermine the Constitution and alienate the Somali people.
