An opportunity for Somalia in the resignation of its president

On Dec. 30, I interviewed with BBC Radio about Somalia. I explained that the imminent departure of Ethiopian troops from Somalia and the recent resignation of the president of the Somali Transitional National Government offer an opportunity for a breakthrough in achieving a political solution. Over the short-term, the security situation could become even more difficult in the capital of Mogadishu, but in the coming weeks and months it now may be possible for Somalis to reach an understanding on a broad-based national government.
