United Nations, Sep 18 (AP) The United Nations Security Council on Friday called an emergency session on the political crisis in Somalia. The deepening crisis in Somalia is expected to delay the election process and further destabilize the East African region. Britain’s Ambassador to the United Nations, Barbara Woodward, expressed her deep concern over the escalating tensions between the President and Prime Minister of Somalia.

Earlier on Thursday, President Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed said in his statement that he had suspended Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble’s authority to appoint and remove officials. This is the latest case of confrontation in the rapidly deteriorating relationship between the two leaders.

Woodward said rising tensions could hamper the electoral process and lead to a constitutional crisis in the country, among other challenges ranging from al-Shabaab terrorists.
