Somalia is undergoing a historic process of change, moving towards peace following decades of violent conflict. The Ministry of Constitutional Affairs (MoCA) along with the Speakers of the National Federal Parliament last Friday introduced to international partners in Nairobi a master plan for the review of Somalia’s Provisional Constitution (2012). Extensive consultations with regional administrations, the National Federal Parliament and civil society will lead to the drafting of a new Federal Constitution, which will set a framework for the national elections in 2020.
Supported by the UN Development Programme (UNDP) and UNSOM in Somalia, the review and drafting process –involving all key role players in the Somali institutions and society– will take less than two years, according to the master plan.
