Overview of position
|The Somali constitutional review process has gained momentum again. Under the leadership of the Office of the President & the Ministry of Justice & Constitutional Affairs, the negotiations between the Federal Government & the Federal Member States have recommenced & produced 1st results in the form of agreements concluded by the National Consultative Council (NCC). These so called NCC agreements are already providing guidance on a number of the open questions of the Somali constitutional review process, most importantly on the justice model, the security architecture, the allocation of powers & competencies, the management & allocation of revenues from natural resources & the organisation of elections on all levels of government in the Federal Republic of Somalia. The OC of the 11th Parliament has been established, the committee elected its leadership & the delegates from the Federal Member States have been appointed as per Article 133 of the Somali Provisional Constitution. The ICRIC has been reestablished & the delegates from the Federal Member States have been appointed as per Article 134 of the Somali Provisional Constitution. Now, the Somali government institutions responsible for the Somali constitutional review process, i.e. OC, ICRIC & MoJCA have renewed the Memorandum of Understanding regulating their cooperation & developed a joint workplan for the constitutional review process. According to this workplan, the MoJCA will need to support the Office of the President with the preparation & facilitation of the next NCC meetings, where the remaining political questions of the Somali constitutional review process will be decided upon by the Federal President & the Presidents of the Federal Member States, while the OC & ICRIC will need to start now to further advance the comprehensive constitutional amendment document on the basis of the agreements already concluded by the NCC. Following their request, the consultancy aims at supporting the OC & ICRIC with the incorporation of NCC agreements in the comprehensive draft constitutional amendment document & facilitating debates in the Somali Federal Parliament on the adoption of the draft constitutional amendment document by explaining draft constitutional amendments & supporting the legal capacity building efforts of the Max Planck Foundation for International Peace & the Rule of Law for members of parliament on comparative constitutional law matters or relevance to the Somali constitutional review process.
For that purpose, a Somali Constitutional Expert will be recruited, who will be included in the existing support project for the Somali Federal Parliament of the Max Planck Foundation for International Peace & the Rule of Law & support the OC & ICRIC in analysing NCC agreements & incorporating them in the comprehensive draft constitutional amendment document, as well as facilitate legal capacity building & parliamentary debates of members of the Somali Federal Parliament.
