WASHINGTON (Somaliguardian) – The United States restricted visas for Somali officials and other individuals it accused of “undermining the democratic process” in Somalia, a day after the deadline for the conclusion of parliamentary elections had been extended until March 15.

In a virtual meeting on Thursday, the Prime Minister and regional leaders agreed to extend the deadline for the completion of parliamentary polls, which were expected to be concluded by February 25, until March 15, drawing criticism from the opposition. The process was previously hit by multiple other delays.

“We are now imposing visa restrictions under this policy against a number of Somali officials and other individuals to promote accountability for their obstructionist actions,” Blinken said in a statement issued by the State Department.
