Mogadishu (SD) – Somalia’s Speaker of the Upper House Senator Abdi Hashi Abdullahi has accused Somalia’s President Mohamed Farmajo of giving unconstitutional power to the lower house of parliament.
“In his speech yesterday, the president told Parliament that he had a duty to uphold the country’s constitution and other laws in the country, but in his speech he surprisingly violated the country’s constitution,” said Speaker of the Upper House Abdi Hashi.
The speaker of the upper house said that the president has violated the constitution of Somalia, sitting the president’s speech yesterday on the lower house being the representatives of the regional governments.
The speaker also said the president’s remarks show that he does not know that the country is a federal and has a parliament of the upper and lower houses.
“Does the president not know that he is the head of a federal state with two parliaments, and I call on him to read the constitution to find out the provisions of the powers of both parliaments,” he said.
Speaker Abdi Hashi said no one is above the country’s rule of law, and that he stands for upholding of law.
