Dhusamareb (SD) – Sheikh Mohamed Shakir Ali Hassan Is elected president of Galmudug by Ahlu Sunna Wal Jama’a wing, following a vote in Dhusamareb town.
Sheikh Mohamed Shakir was elected by the Galmudug parliament established by Ahlu Sunna, and he competed with two other candidates who later withdrew their bit.
This comes as Galmudug parliamentarians backed by the federal government, listened to the comments of Galmudug presidential candidates today.
The Galmudug presidential election for the government-backed wing is scheduled for tomorrow, but reports indicate that it could be delayed, due to pressure from the international community.
Galmudug’s situation has changed dramatically, as a result of the federal government’s intervention and its plan to forcibly appoint the president.
