There has been a legal dispute over whether to hold free and fair elections in the country
The controversy escalated after it was reported that the Government and Parliament were seeking an unconstitutional extension
The Speaker of the Parliament and the President are arguing for the election of a person and a vote which seems to be out of date.
Most jurists believe that timely elections are a constitutional provision that requires elections every four years.
It is also legal for the Parliament and the Presidency to have a term of 4 years which is beyond the scope of the extension.
Most Somalis believe that the country is entering a political crisis that could lead to delays and insecurity
