Mogadishu (SD) – The Speaker of the Upper House Abdi Hashi Abdullahi has appointed the 8 members of the Constituency Committee for the Election of Members of Parliament from the Northern Regions (Somaliland), having previously nominated the Four Members of the Federal Level of Elections and Disputes.
The chairman asked the Somali prime minister to include these members in the National Electoral Commission.
The Speaker of the Upper House has previously opposed the Federal Electoral Commissions and the Parliamentary Electoral Commission, appointed by Prime Minister Mohamed Roble.
Last Thursday, Abdi Hashi Abdullahi, the Speaker of the Upper House of the Federal Parliament, issued the guidelines for the election of members of both houses of parliament from the Northern Regions (Somaliland).
The speaker of the upper house has previously accused President Farmajo of trying to hijack the election of lawmakers from the northern regions of Somalia.
The deputy prime minister of Somalia, who hails from Somaliland has dismissed the speaker’s legal claims of appointing the committee and linked Abdi Hashi with the country’s apposition parties.
