Firstly the UNDP is very involved in supporting the elections, weve
been discussing that. Weve been discussing the gender target of 30
percent women, which obviously i am very supportive of women
being involved in politics and leadership. Weve been to the
parliament which is another very important partner for UNDP and
spoken with the Speaker and the Prime Minister.

We have the first National Development Plan since the early 80s
and we are going to hold elections as well and the UNDP is playing a
major role in all these activities. We have briefed Helen about the
reality prevailing on the ground and what is going to happen in the
country in the next 60 days which is very important for the political
reconstruction and political progress of Somalia.

Today politics in Somalia is discussed in places far away from
Mogadishu. People are engaged. Every day we are increasing the
number of citizens participating in the political processes. Initially it
was 135 elders who were involved inthe exercise, now we are
talking of more than 14,000 people participating. We feel we are
getting closer to the final destination which is one person, one vote
in 2020.

Somalia is at a good turning point, says UNDP Head Helen
Clark
Mogadishu, 24 August 2016 - The United Nations Development
Programme (UNDP) Administrator Helen Clark today described the
country as being at a good turning point during her visit to the
Somali capital.
Clark spent the day in discussions with Somalias Federal President
Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, Prime Minister Omar Abdirashid Ali
Sharmarke and other senior leaders of his government about the
2016 electoral process, a proposed 30 percent quota for womens
representation in parliament and the upcoming launch of the
countrys first national development plan in more than 25 years.
Ms. Clark was accompanied throughout her visit by the Deputy
Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for Somalia,
Peter de Clercq. She was received at Mogadishu International Airport
by the Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for
Somalia, Michael Keating, and other top UN officials.

Also on hand to receive her was the Deputy Special Representative


of the Chairperson of the African Union Commission for Somalia,
Lydia Wanyoto.
The UNDP chief later met with members of civil society
organizations, officials of the federal Ministry of Women and Human
Rights Development, and UN personnel.
Clark said the purpose of her visit was to get a firsthand account of
the situation in Somalia and verify that we are doing as partners
what we should be doing to support Somalias movement forward.
The UNDP Administrator said she strongly backs the 30 per cent
quota for female representation in both houses of the countrys next
federal parliament.
UNDP is very involved in supporting the elections, and Im very
supportive of women in politics and leadership, Clark noted.
The elections are coming up, I feel some traction and some
momentum so I go away with a positive message about what is
being achieved.
President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud thanked Ms. Clark for the
support the UN has given to the country. He told journalists he had
briefed the visiting UNDP chief about socio-political developments in
the country, the challenges facing Somalia and the positive role
played by UNDP in helping to transform the country.
We now have the first National Development Plan since the early
Eighties. We are going to hold elections and the UNDP is playing a
major role in all these activities, President Hassan Sheikh said.
Today politics in Somalia are discussed in places far away from
Mogadishu. Every day we are increasing the number of citizens
participating in the political processes. We feel we are getting closer
to the final destination, which is a one person, one vote (election) in
2020, he noted.
Representatives of Somali civil society organizations expressed
concern that the 30 percent quota may not be achieved in the
forthcoming electoral process. They included a group of goodwill
ambassadors appointed by the President to advocate in favor of
greater gender representation in the legislative branch of
government.
