Somalia’s Speaker of Parliament, Mohamed Osman Jawari, has resigned after a three-week power struggle with the country’s prime minister, officials say
Constitution Minister Abdirahman Hosh Jibril announced in a tweet that Speaker Jawari had submitted his resignation.
“Deputy Speaker (Abdiweli Mudey) read the resignation letter from the Speaker in front of us this morning,” Isse said.
Isse also said that the Speaker took into account advice from President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo, to avert further political stand off.
Neither the President nor the PM publicly commented on the fiasco.
