PM Roble asks FEIT Electoral body to suspend HOP086 in Beledweyne
Roble has directed the Federal Indirect Election Implementation Committee (FEIT) to postpone the HOP # 086 seat which was being occupied for the last five years by Farah Sheikh Abdikadir who is out of the country for treatment. Former National Intelligence Security Agency (NISA) boss Fahad Yassin is currently running for the seat and might have necessitated the PM to ask the Electoral body to temporarily postpone the election of the seat. Some Members of the Federal Indirect Election Implementation Committee told the media that Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble did not give further details as to why the election of the seat was postponed to unidentified date. Villa Somalia is trying hard to clinch and reserve the seat for Fahad Yassin who is also aspiring to run for Deputy Speaker of the incoming 11th Parliament. PM Roble and Fahad Yassin have not been in good terms with each other since September 6, 2021 when PM Roble suspended Fahad over the disappearance and subsequent killing of Ikraan Tahliil, a female intelligence officer who was picked from the intelligence headquarters in Mogadishu. President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo later on 7 th September 2021 appointed Fahad as his National Security Advisor Security with his sacking from the intelligence agency stoking a controversy between him and Roble.
