SRSG Mahiga warns against intimidation in the selection of the MPs
Mogadishu, 31 July 2012 – Today is day 6 of the National Constituent Assembly and the anticipation and excitement of tomorrow's voting day is evident. The transition in Somalia is coming to an end. A new, more representative era that the people of Somalia have yearned for over two decades is about to start. The road has not been easy. Setting up the NCA was demanding in both resources and energy but the dedication and the commitment of the Somalis made it happen. Tomorrow their 825 representatives will vote on one of the most important documents, a document that will set the legal base for the next years, the Provisional Constitution.
