ADADO (Horn Observer) Galmudug Parliament on Saturday formed 13 member electoral body who are tasked to prepare the presidential election, following the ouster of the former president Ahmed Duale Haaf, officials said.

The formation of the electoral commission follows after the Galmudug parliament ousted the former president Ahmed Duale Haaf in a vote of no-confidence.

"47 members voted in favor of the electoral commission” Ahmed Yusuf Ciyow, the interim speaker of the Galmudug parliament announced.




Independent sources obtained by Horn Observer say that Galmudug Vice President and speaker of Parliament who were put under house arrest by militias loyal to the former President Haaf for more than a week, remain confined to their homes.

The lawmakers also said that the first deputy speaker of Galmudug parliament Hared Ali Hared lost his leadership position after having been absent 117 days from the sessions citing articles in Galmudug constitution.

Galmudug fell into political turmoil after its former president Ahmed Duale Geelle Haaf sided with the Saudi Alliance against Qatar, an issue which the Federal government remained neutral.

Elsewhere in Mogadishu, Amb. Bashir Adan Ali "Danan” announced his readiness to contest the Galmudug presidential elections in a press conference held in Mogadishu on Saturday.
