South West State submits upper house candidates list
President of the interim south west administration Sharif Hassan Sheikh Aden has on Sunday submitted list of the candidates for the upper house of the Somalia’s upcoming parliament.
South west state becomes the fourth regional administration to put forward the list of candidates nominated for the Upper House after Puntland, Jubbaland and Galmudug states.
Hir-Shabelle, an emerging federal state which is under the process of formation in Jowhar is yet to nominate its upper house list members as the local elders and the government are still working the process.
Somalia’s upper house chamber formation has been postponed twice due to a standoff between the country’s leaders over the power-sharing system and electoral process model.
