Mogadishu, 6 December 2014 – The United Nations Assistance Mission in Somalia (UNSOM) notes today's parliamentary vote of no confidence in the Prime Minister of the Federal Government, pays tribute to his work for peacebuilding in Somalia and urges the swift establishment of a new inclusive Government.
SRSG Kay said, "Somalia now needs unity of political purpose between its 
institutions and leaders and a significant period of stability. The 
Federal Government and Parliament have important and urgent work to do to 
help Somalia achieve political, security and development progress in the 
remaining twenty-one months of their mandate. The United Nations and all 
Somalia's friends look forward to the early establishment of a government 
that is inclusive and representative. I also hope that once a new 
Government is in place, Somalia’s leaders will reach agreement on how to 
prevent such crises and instability in the future. I am pleased that the 
Federal Parliament will now be able to focus in the coming days on the 
passage of key legislation to enable the political transformation of 
Somalia, in particular laws establishing the National Independent 
Electoral Commission and the Boundaries and Federation Commission.”

"The United Nations remains committed to working with the Federal 
Government and Somalia’s people and political leaders to achieve the 
objectives set out in the Provisional Constitution, the New Deal Compact 
for Somalia and Vision 2016. Completing the formation of Federal member 
states is a major challenge for the coming weeks. It is important that 
women, youth and under represented groups are enabled to play a full role 
in these and other political processes,” he added.
