Members of the Somali parliament who oppose reinstating certain ministers who served former PM

MOGADISHU (HOL) ---In a meeting at Hayat Hotel in Mogadishu today, two parliamentary committees in the parliament have warned Somalia’s prime minister of reinstating certain ministers who served in his predecessor’s government, accusing them of creating recurring political wrangling between the president and his former prime minister.
The development comes following the Somali prime minister’s recent decision of withdrawing his previous cabinet line-ups that saw him reinstating some ministers from his predecessor’s government after the majority of the country’s legislators expressed their outrage towards his decision.
Most of his dissolved cabinet members were close allies of the president.
In a statement issued after their meeting, the 90-member committees affirmed their willingness of having political novices whom they said can be eligible for their designated positions.
Political analysts believe that the parliament’s new political front represents a thorn in the flesh of the prime minister’s new political spectrum which faces mounting challenges before he appointed his new cabinet again.
