The vice president of Ahlu Sunna Waljama Ali Bashi Ali said the federal government and regional states leaders attended the NLF failed to reach a common deal on the next election.

Mr Ali said his administration has nothing to support the deal, in which he said could not lead the horn of Africa country to a free and fair election by the end of 2016.

“The national leadership forum has collapsed after several regional leaders have walked out of it due to a spat over the formation of the upper house of the next parliament,” Ali said.

Ahlu Sunna group which is based in Dhusamareb, the regional capital of Galgaduud has fought Al shabaab and is against the newly appointed interim Galmudug administration in Adado city. – Shabelle Media Network
