During a joint, extraordinary session of the Lower and Upper Houses of the Somali Parliament on Saturday, 252 MPs have voted to approve the deal, 1 rejected and another abstained from voting.

The MPs have also voted to keep their posts until a new parliament is sworn in, saying that the move has been made in accordance with the national constitution.
