MOGADISHU (Horn Observer) Joint Constitutional Review Committee (CRC) of the Federal parliament of Somalia have on Saturday boycotted the constitutional review conference to be held in Mogadishu on Sunday and accused the Ministry of Constitutional affairs for abusing its power of authority by not following proper procedures, this came only hours after the regional federal states announced their rejection on the local media.


"This conference is an obstacle to the constitutional review and proper procedures have not been followed,” the joint constitutional review committee said in a statement on Saturday, "the ministry is abusing its power of authority by organizing this conference.”

The CRC boycott follows after Members of regional Federal States of Somalia - Southwest, Puntland, Galmudug and Jubbaland - rejected the participation of Constitutional review conference organized by the Ministry of Constitutional, which was supposed to open on Sunday here in Mogadishu.

There has been earlier allegations where Minister Hosh was accused for not making proper consultations with the regional federal counterparts, who are key to the review process, in addition to abuse of power of authority by his office.

However, heads of regional member states are holding a conference in Kismayo on Sunday. The conference which was organized by Jubbaland President, Ahmed Madobe is due to be held on Sunday in Kismayo. However, the motive of the conference is yet to be revealed.

On late Saturday, Somalia Minister of information, Eng. Abdirahman Omar Osman said that the National conference on Constitution scheduled to kick off on 8 of October has been postponed due to technical problems.
