MOGADISHU (Somaliguardian) – The speaker of Somalia’s outgoing parliament is paving the way for a no-confidence vote against the prime minister Mohamed Hussein Roble, who has been locked in a bitter row with the president over the dismissal of the country’s powerful spy chief.
A member of the Somali parliament Mohamed Hassan Idiris said on Wednesday that the speaker called the first session of parliament in months since the legislative body’s term expired late last year and after efforts to elect new MPs have now got underway.
In an interview with VOA Somali, Mr Idiris called the move illegal, adding that the parliament had already been dissolved and is unable to discuss the current situation of the country until new MPs are sworn in to the vacant seats.
“I saw messages that the parliament speaker sent, calling closed-door emergency session”, the MP said.
