The United States called on Somalia’s parliament on Friday to hold a fair election for the war-torn nation’s next president, and for the losers to accept the results gracefully.

The new Somali parliament, whose members were selected by traditional elders last month, will hold a secret ballot on Monday to choose the next president.

“September 10 will be a historic day for Somalia as its parliament chooses a new president,” acting deputy State Department spokesman Patrick Ventrell said.

“This is a time for parliament to act with courage, determination and integrity in conducting a fair and transparent election.”
