The international community has delivered one of his harshest criticisms against President Farmaajo expressing dismay over his failure to deliver a universal poll four years after he took office.
In a terse statement Monday, the UN and other international partners including the US, UK, and EU among others filed regrets for Farmaajo’s inability to move the country from the 2016 model after he and federal member state leaders last week patched up the Enhanced Legitimacy Model crafted by the Hassan Sheikh Mohamud administration and adopted it.

“The partners observe with regret that the announced model falls short of the longstanding Somali goal of direct voting for members of parliament in this electoral cycle,” a joint statement Monday evening read in part amid calls for clarity on the ‘Mogadishu Model’.

The much hyped-up 2020 one-man-one-vote faded into the abyss in July when the National Independent Electoral Commission (NIEC) said it could not deliver the universal vote milestone seeking up to nine months instead.

In their response last week, Farmaajo and FMS leaders relegated the Halima Yare-led commission into the back-burner for the second time since it was formed as they opted for a temporary team to oversee the upcoming elections. NIEC did not conduct the 2016 elections as well.

ANALYSIS
The indictment against Farmaajo Monday stood out as a direct show of frustration on his administration which despite the support it got from the international community especially in its early years in office failed to increase citizen participation in elections.

In the 2016 elections, 51 voters appointed by elders elected an MP. Four years later, only 50 voters will be added to that list relegating the majority of the population to the spectator stage in the election process.

For many observers, however, it was clear delivering a universal vote would have been an uphill task for Farmaajo owing to self-inflicted harm and the absence of a political will. Sour and antagonistic relations with the FMS robbed Farmaajo of the platform and opportunity through which he could canvass such delicate topics as elections.

It is only last week in Mogadishu-almost full term later that the president got the audience of all FMS leaders albeit with conditions. With his former Prime Minister Hassan Khaire, Farmaajo had been on a vicious battle with FMS leaders with the intent of bringing them into submission and subsequently replacing them all with allies.
But the international community too has been complicit in Farmaajo’s failure in delivering a universal poll. Statements of ‘the first one-person-one-vote in 50 years’ were churned out from Halane and replicated in the UN Security Council and any other international fora with no matching call for action and accountability.

In July when NIEC ruled out a universal vote, the UN followed with ‘we welcome’ the technical proposals by NIEC chair Halima Yarey which technically sought term extension. There were no concerns about election delays by the international community.

The Mogadishu Model is expected to be tabled in the Federal Parliament for approval in the coming days.
 
Xarmaajo waste his time in PL & JL beef also federal elections in SWS, GM and JL.

His main job was to fight alkabab and to reach to 2020 1m1v, he didnt do it.

In total he failed in important points.

We all wanted 1m1v but unfortunately many of the regional leaders preferred the 2017 model. Farmaajo had to compromise to save the country. We have a wonderful leader and inshallah things will continue to improve :)

There's no need to lie, he failed to implement 1m1v during his term and wanted an extension to do it.

Guys I don’t believe the problem are the leaders, it’s us as a people that have to change. Any person who becomes president, we turn on him at some point. The next president after Farmaajo will be the same. Let us support our president til the end of his term :)

Siad Barre created animosity, distrust and malice between Somalis. Apparently it was his intention for Somalia to be messed up after he was ousted, think of it as his nuclear option for getting betrayed. I seriously appreciate your patriotism and optimistic outlook but it will be years until we as Somalis learn to love and trust each other. Mark my words, every president for the next 40-50 years will have their fare share of serious problems, opposition and criticism. It doesn't help most presidents were alive during Barres regime and they are seriously under qualified, this includes Farmaajo as much as it pains me to say it. The best we can do is pray our seriously mentally unwell and overly unqualified elders don't pass on this mental disease to their offsprings.

Just think about it, marexaan are a lot of people and the best they can offer as a presidential candidate is a taxi operator from Buffalo. The same goes for beesha abgaal, are sheikh shariif and HSM really the best they can offer? Maybe these qabiils intentions aren't to better Somalis and Somalia as a whole, but to further continue moving forward their ill agendas. Because I seriously refuse to believe Somalis who live all over the world couldn't produce a seriously well qualified candidate that can move Somalia forward, I refuse to believe we are an entire nation consisting of 68 IQ.
