The Attorney General was recently interviewed by the media regarding allegations the issue of extension, “ I surprised to see this allegation  in media reports and I assure you that I and the head of state have not even once met to discuss those issues.

When it comes to issues relating to electoral matters then it would be wise for you to consult with the national electoral commission which is the sole body tasked with setting the date for future election as clearly stated in a Presidential decree.

In recent days reports carried by the media alleged that President Silanyo wants an extension of his term after his tenure in offices comes to an end in 2015.

Recently a tribal chieftain known as “BUUR MADOW” openly stated that the current President term in office should be extended.
