EU welcomes the ‘beginning of a new democratic era’ in Somalia

After eight years on from the establishment of Transitional Federal Institutions in Somalia , the transition has ended with the election of the President by the new Federal Parliament. The European Union has congratulated Hassan Sheikh Mohamoud on his election as the new President of Somalia, and welcomed the prospects this occasion brings to the country for lasting peace, prosperity and stability.
In words of Catherine Ashton, the EU High Representative,  “[t]he adoption of a new Provisional Constitution in particular marks the beginning of a new, democratic era in Somalia”. Yet, she points out that “there is now much work to be done” and “the new Federal Institutions must finalise key pending elements of the Provisional Constitution and embark on stabilisation efforts in all accessible areas in the country, both crucial for the future of a viable federal Somalia.”
