Puntland, Galmudug & HirShabele States to releases list of candidates for Upper House polls

The regional state leaders of Puntland, Galmudug and Hirshabelle states are expected to submit their list of candidates for the upper house in the coming hours. The regional states, which have been reluctant to announce the list of candidates in the past weeks, are said to be behind the ongoing dispute between the seat-holders. Puntland President Said Abdullahi Deni, has announced that he will submit his list of candidates for the Upper House by this afternoon, as his administration seeks to become the third administration to hold elections for the Upper House. Deni is expected to include prominent politicians in the list, with most former senators reportedly returning. Meanwhile, Ali Gudlawe and Qoorqoor will also announce their list in the next 24 hours. The two administrations had planned to submit the list last Wednesday but did not submit it. Jubaland and Southwest states have elected senators to join the 11th Parliament of Somalia, as the two states kicked off Upper House last week.
