Fahad Yasin in despair after Supreme Court rejects his case

MOGADISHU, Somalia - Farmajo's national security adviser Fahad Yasin is in the final days of his five-year influence in Somalia's politics after being barred from joining the new parliament.

Fahad who was the kingmaker who ruled the country behind the scenes for the past five years lost his lawsuit filed in the supreme court against FEIT’s decision to invalidate his election for the Lower House Hop86 seat.

In a statement, the supreme court announced it has no jurisdiction over complaints from administrative election decisions related to the Indirect Elections in the country which are based on political agreement.

The former director of the intelligence agency [NISA], was elected in February this year in Beledweyne city, but his election was rejected by the Federal Electoral Commission after receiving complaints.

After this, Fahad Yasin later filed a lawsuit in the Supreme Court this month, seeking a legal action that nullifies FEIT suspension. However, all his efforts ended in vain and he has no other court left to appeal.

Fahad who was accused of the disappearance and subsequent murder of Ikran Tahlil, NISA’s female cybersecurity expert has been the most controversial figure in the government during Farmajo’s term ended in February 2021 without a successor in place.
