The Garowe principles 1 and 2, and Galkayo agreements were not inclusive nor had they acquired legal status because they were not having executive formulated to take the form of decree law, or administrative social will to be submitted to parliament to obtain legal status, or to be acted upon on a precedence of administrative act which gives the government the right to acquire the prevailing social situation on the different districts and regions.
The signatories of both Garowe principles and Galkayo agreements had violated the charter and the country laws where by the President and the prime Minister abused their powers by making themselves equal to the authorities of the President of Punt land, the President of Galmoudug and the Movement of Sunna Walgamaha.It is ridiculous that the UN and the international community accepted and endorsed such illegal actions by the higher authorities of Somalia Transitional Federal institutions.Most of the Somali population is obsessed and taken by surprise by the international community on why they encouraged six persons to represent Somalia while the action of the international community violates the charters of the UN regional organizations and sub regional organizations, as well as the sovereignty of Somalia.the current volatile situation of Somalia which caused the bomb assassination of the Prime Minister reveals a serious security lapse and created accusations and counter accusations in the security apparatus of Somalia, and it is quite apparent that the above mentioned principals and agreements would return the Horn of Africa nation to the civil strife of 1991 where there was a green line in Mogadishu.
Without any complications and not undergoing any hustling and creation of conflicts, the process of changing the current authorities could have been done by making amendments in the charter.This could have been possible by amending the articles of the charter which stipulates that the current parliament will be replaced by an elected parliament.Instead of this, the current parliament will be replaced 275 Members of parliament selected by traditional leaders based on the 4.5 clan formula.What is more frustrating is the Somali president who is the custodian of then charter but who has failed to act upon it.
THE DRAFT OF THE CONSTITUTION
Somalis feel that the drafting of the constitution was not under their guidance and ownership. They regard the process as unacceptable in terms of expenditure and formulation of the text of the draft of the constitution.This is tedious process could have been tackled by taking the Somali constitution 1960 as a base and in addition the draft Constitution 1989 and the current charter.As the constitution is a social contract, the input of the Somali people is inevitable, for the constitution carries the aspirations, hopes, correction of injustices, preservation of the rights of individuals and the whole population of Somalia irrespective of being Somalis or foreigners.At present, accessibility to most districts and regions is impossible, hence the draft of the constitution should be left to the incoming parliament and government and the amendment of the charter is enough to establish the subsequent government and parliament.The current crisis in Somalia warrants immediate intervention of correcting the aftermath of Garowe and Galkayo Accords and the drafting of the constitution. via The American Chronicle,
