Following a meeting in the town of Garowe, the two regional leaders said they would attend a meeting in Mogadishu with other federal member states and the federal government to strike a final agreement on electoral models.

Early this month president Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo along with three state leaders and the mayor of Mogadishu reached an agreement on the country's election model after days of talks in the central town of Dhusamareb.

The election will be based on constituency caucuses, according to a communique issued after the summit in Dhusamareb, the administrative capital of Galmadug state.

Each caucus will consist of 301 delegates who will vote for a seat in parliament and the election will be presided over by a national independent electoral commission and a party system will be applied.
