SCRIPT

Baidoa, 22 November 2015 -- The Special Representative of the UN Secretary-
General (SRSG) for Somalia Nicholas Kay met with senior officials of the Federal
Government and the Interim South West Administration (ISWA) in Baidoa on
Saturday, 21 November and encouraged them to expedite formation of the ISWA
regional assembly.

SRSG Kay met with the Federal Prime Minister of Somalia, Omar Abdirashid Ali
Sharmarke, Interim South West Administration President Sharif Hassan Sheikh Adan,
the Governor of Bay Region Abdirashid Abdullahi, and ISWA cabinet ministers. Their
discussions touched on a wide range of issues, including the progress made by ISWA
in the one year since its inauguration and the creation of a regional assembly.
President Sharif Hassan briefed the SRSG on the political and security developments
that have taken place in ISWA and appreciated the United Nations support to the
transformation and development of the region.
The SRSG later met with local elders who have led reconciliation efforts in the state
and a group of cabinet ministers. They exchanged views on the recently concluded
regional consultations for the 2016 electoral process. SRSG Kay thanked the
leadership of ISWA and elders for their hard work, patience and self-sacrifice in
building institutions.
The purpose of my visit is to engage with the leadership and with elders about the
formation of the state assembly and to encourage them to complete the tasks as
quickly as possible, and to complete with a representation of at least 20 per cent
women in the assembly, he said.

We had a very good meeting and the elders are doing a great job so far. We have
worked very hard for the last nine months and are now closer to the finish line. I
hope we will finish in the next two weeks, added Suldaan Warsame Alio Ibro, one of
the elders who attended the meeting.


Kay received praise from ISWA President Sharif Hassan for his commitment and
support to the formation of the regional state and the founding of institutions. The
SRSG later met with the AMISOM Sector III Commander Col. Yemane Gabre Mikael.
Discussions between the two focused on the current security and humanitarian
situation in the Bay, Bakool and Gedo regions.
END.
