Lower House speaker urged to resign amid political crisis

Members of Somalia’s Lower House chamber of Parliament have called for the resignation of the Speaker Mohamed Osman Jawari as the deadlock over the motion against him widens.

Speaking at a news conference in Mogadishu on Saturday, the opposition MPs accused the long-serving Speaker of violating the constitution and parliamentary procedures.

The call comes in the wake of worsening political rift in Mogadishu as more than 100 lawmakers have signed out a motion of no confidence against Jawari last week.

The current standoff has affected the normal seatings of the lower House and led the Senate to form a 7-member committee to mediate the rival MPs in the national assembly.
