MOGADISHU (Horn Observer) Somali Parliament on Sunday dismissed requested by the Minister of Constitutional Affairs Abdi Hosh to postpone planned to call to appear before the parliament.

The speaker of the parliament, Mohamed Osman Jawaari, have on Wednesday formally informed the constitutional minister, Abdi Hosh to appear before the parliament on Sunday, after lawmakers demanded that on a motion.


The members of the parliament of were furious for the minister’s behavior for not obeying their orders and suggested they discuss the minister’s issue on his absence. The Minister sent an official letter to the speaker of the parliament requesting his scheduled appearance of the parliament to be postponed to a later date. However, the MPs argue that the last minute request from the Minister is disrespectful and said that request should be rejected.

Mr. Abdi Hosh, the Minister of the Constitutional affairs, was wanted to be questioned over comments he made on his twitter page, which he opposed parliamentary decision.

"Since we are not satisfied with the minister’s request to postpone his appearance before us, we should review his status and position as minister in absentee.” Law Abdifatah Osman Dahir said,

Meanwhile another lawmaker Samiiro Hassan Abdullahi, said that since minister said that he was unable to come before the parliament for issues related to his health, we should be respecting his and wait for the next planned appearance

Finally the lawmakers voted for the minister Hosh’s request to postpone his appearance and 85 voted against while 71 voted in favor of the minister’s request.

Its not the first time, the Minister of Constitution makes such comments. In late May, Mr. Hosh made harsh comments against the country’s judiciary calling them, "corrupt” after the Somalia’s attorney general summoned an individual cited in the media as his close friend, after the country’s journalists’ union - NUSOJ - filed a complaint against that individual.
