For young people, jobs, education, healthcare, economic
opportunity and better future is what they are after. And they
worry, on the basis of conversations I have had with them today,
that the older people are only interested in power and not the
future, either of the country or their own future.

They have been talking about the need to move to one-person,
one-vote in 2020 in the hope that will be an equalizer and that will
result in politicians being elected on the basis of their political

agenda and what they want to do for the country, rather than just
on the basis of how much money they have.

I see the youth fitting in every aspect of the national
development plan. We should avoid seeing the youth as a
separate entity or a separate part of the national development
plan. They should be everywhere. They should be in politics, in
security, they should be in employment, in environment, in all the
different factors. The youth are going to be the ones who are
going to be implementing this development plan. They are also
the politicians of tomorrow, leaders, politicians, civil servants and
ministers.

For us to be optimistic collectively, theres something important
for us. That is we should focus on looking forward. There are a lot
of things that have happened in the past and the current
politicians are part of the past, they have lived that past. What
you, as young people can contribute is to look forward. Look at
the future, a new Somalia. A Somalia that has never been before.

The Somali youths need mentoring and the provision of


leadership studies so that they would be able to lead the country
tomorrow. We need Somali youths who are not corrupt and are far
from impunity. The youth must get a visionary leadership and the
government should create policies that will help get the country
out of the chaos.

It seems the youth are not as visible as women in the political
arena. They are over-shadowed by the older generation and I
believe if the youth are given opportunities to be part of the
political system, Somalias politics will transform. The youth are
the ones who are destabilizing the country but if they are
accommodated in the leadership, they can implement changes. I
also urge the youth to seek leadership positions.

Mogadishu, 5 November 2016 - Somali youths discussed options for more


active participation in the political transformation of their country during a twoday conference hosted by the United Nations in Somalia in partnership with
youth-led organizations.
About 50 youths attended the meeting, which focused on a more effective role
for young Somalis in the 2016 electoral process, the implementation of the
forthcoming National Development Plan, and the achievement of the Agenda
2030 sustainable development goals in Somalia.
For young people, jobs, education, health care, economic opportunity and a
brighter future are what they are after. And they worry, on the basis of
conversations Ive had with them today, that older people are only interested
in power and not really interested in the future, either of the country or of their

own future, said Michael Keating, the Special Representative of the UN


Secretary-General for Somalia.
He urged the youth, who comprise an estimated 80 percent of Somalias
population, to get fully involved in the ongoing political process, which he
added would lead to one-person, one-vote elections in 2020.
The Deputy Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for Somalia
Peter de Clerq said he foresees a vital role for young Somalis in the threeyear National Development Plan that will take effect at the start of next year.
I see the youth fitting in every aspect of the national development plan. We
should avoid seeing the youth as a separate entity or a separate part of the
national development plan. They should be everywhere, de Clercq stressed.
Muna Hassan Mohamed, a youth leader who is running for a seat in the
Lower House of the federal parliament, said young Somalis are in need of
mentoring that can mould them into future leaders.
The youth must get visionary leadership, and the government should create
policies that will help get the country out of the chaos, Muna noted.
One highlight of the two-day event was the painting of murals emblazoned
with participants vision for the future of Somalia.
The UN has been at the forefront of advocating for inclusivity and greater
participation of youth and women in the 2016 electoral process.
