Bismillaahi Rahmani Rahiim,

Unlawful decisions of the so called
National Consultative Forum
Banadiri Political Reformation Counsel (BPRC) hereby condemn in the highest
possible language to the awful outcome of the so called National Consultation
Forum, which served for interest of clan politicians, who marginalized the
Banadiri Community, The all other minority groups through the forum
representation and decisions.
BPRC was terribly shocked when we read the communique of the so called leaders
of the federal states and the federal government, who intentionally
marginalized the Banadiri community in the process, which gives the armed clans
that occupy regions to share the upper house of the parliament.
the 4.5 system, which the Banadiri Community, and other clans were marginalized
was accepting us at least half of what the other clans were getting as
political power-sharing, but the upper house of the parliament is now shared by
Hawiye, Darod, Dir and Rahanweyn, while the rest of the clans including Banadiri
were deliberately left without representation.
are completely shocked to learn that the so called leaders that attended the
NFC decided to share all the members of the upper house just between their
clans, their decision is a complete betrayal to the public and national
interest, they didn’t represent us in the conferences and the decided to leave
us behind, but we are still citizen communities fighting for their rights” Said
the Chairman of BPRC Dr. Lutfi Sheriff Mohamed Omar
government intentionally left us during the nomination of the technical team of
the consultation meetings, and now we are marginalized through that non
inclusive process, so that, both the process and the outcome are illegal and
can’t be treated as something representing the Somali people” He added.
Banadiri Community calls on the international community to pressure the leaders
to accommodate the Banadiri community and all other minority clans and groups
to the system or otherwise review its support to such clan biasing system.
call on the entire Somalia parliament to take legal action against the
decisions that are threat to the national interest, the sovereignty and
integrity of the Somali people.
Finally,BPRC calls the international
community, The UK, EU, US, UN, IGAD, AU, LAS, The governments of Sweden, Norway
and Finland and the troop contributing countries of AMISOMto demonstrate against the very unlawful decision, which decides the people of
the country into citizens that have right to represent and represented and
citizens that have no right to represent and no represented.
