MOGADISHU (Horn Observer) Senator Abdirahman Sheikh Mohamed Faroole has on Saturday resigned from his membership to the Joint Parliamentary Constitutional Review Committee (CRC) in a letter submitted to the members of the upper house of the parliament, after failing to win the chairmanship of the committee.


Senator Faroole submitted a letter of his resignation to the Saturday’s session of the Upper House of the parliament, who then requested from the members of the house to accept his resignation.

The chairman of the Upper House of the parliament Abdi Hashi Abdullahi informed the members of the house that the vacant seat will be completed shortly.

Senator Abdi Hassan Awale (Qeybdiid) was elected as the chair of the Constitutional Review committee (CRC) which comprises of the two chambers of the parliament. Mr. Awale won 6-4 against Farole of the all 10 member male committee.

However, Women members of the parliament tabled a motion against the committee, saying that women have been excluded. Female Lawmakers protested against the Joint Parliamentary constitutional review committee after having excluded all women parliamentarians from the committee.

The International community comprised of the Ambasadors of Ethiopia, Italy, Sweden, UK, United States of America, the African Union, EU, IGAD and the United Nations shared their concerns on this subject in a letter addressed to the parliament encouraging the leaders of the house of the people and the upper house to find a way to include women representatives to the joint parliamentary Constitutional Review Committee (CRC).
