The Somali Parliament resigns from Prime Minister Ali Jaire

The Somali parliament passed the overwhelming dismissal of the country’s prime minister, Hasan Ali Jaire, on Saturday after accepting a vote of no confidence by 170 votes – from both the opposition and some Somali government MPs – at eight, as opposed to the president of the chamber announced Mohamed Mursal.

Though the reason for the vote is not officially known, parliamentary sources from the Garowe On Line portal suggest that this is the culmination of an undercover dispute between the country’s prime minister and President Mohamed AbdulLahi ‘Farmajo’ of the next Somalia elections.

The prime minister had spoken out against the use of universal suffrage before there was a chance that a system change for logistical reasons would delay the election, which would have resulted in “Farmajo” being longer than in the performance.

Somalia’s electoral commission had already identified the immense difficulty of holding the elections this year as planned and had estimated it in early 2021 at the earliest.
