Mogadishu (UNA-OIC) – Somalia’s President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo on Saturday accepted the vote of no confidence passed by the House of the People (parliament) against the administration of Prime Minister Hassan Ali Kheyre.

As part of the fulfillment of his constitutional mandate, President Farmajo has today welcomed the decision of the House of the People, taking into consideration the independence and constitutional authority of the House of the People.

He also valued and underscored the significance of cooperation between all arms of the government, especially at this critical stage.

“The rift between the government and the legislature is undermining the progress that has been made, and to that end I have decided to consider the voice of the House of Representatives as the foundation of our nationhood, said Farmajo.

According to Somali National News Agency (SONNA), the president will shortly appoint a prime minister who will form a government to lead the country through this transitional period and strengthen service delivery.
