MOGADISHU [SMN] – Prime Minister Mohamed Roble has welcomed the election of Khadar Hussein as the chairman of the Somaliland interim elections body in what could seal the fate of Senate speaker Abdi Hashi’s grievances.
The Office of the Prime Minister tweeted shortly after the elections noting the PM endorsed the process adding he will continue reconciling the two sides.
“PM Mohamed Roble congratulates the elected board members of the Somaliland Electoral Commission SIET on Saturday and urged them to accelerate the election process in collaboration with the FEIT,” the tweet read in part. “PM Roble reiterated that he would continue to reconcile Somaliland politicians.”
The PM’S nod to the new leadership seems to cut out Senate speaker Abdi Hashi’s side from the SIET leadership.
However, the row between the two sides may not be over yet as they will be battling out again on the nomination of delegates who will subsequently elect the MPs.
