President: I tried to change frame of elders picking MPs

Somali president Hassan Sheikh said his leaving government has tried to make changes in the frame of the elders who will pick MPs of the next parliament.

Somalia’s leaders agreed to revive 135-elders system who chose current MPs serving in the outgoing Somali parliament in August, 2012 in Mogadishu.

“In recent National leadership forum (NLF) in Mogadishu, we agreed not to change the elders’ system, but to replace the dead with new ones,” he added.

Despite this decision, people of Somalia are in shock and amazed after hearing that the government has excluded Abdi Dahir from the list of the 135 elders.

The government of Somalia led by Hassan Sheikh Mohamud has put in the index new elder named Ugaas Hassan, to replace Abdi Dahir.
