New president holds first meeting with Federal States leaders

MOGADISHU, Somalia – The newly elected Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud has held a meeting with the leaders of the country’s five the Federal States in Mogadishu on Tuesday.

The special meeting was attended by Abdullahi Deni [Puntland], Abdi Abdi Karie Qoor-Qoor [Galmudug], Ali Hussein Gudlawe [HirShabelle], Abdiaziz Lafta-Garen [Southwest], and Ahmed Madobe [Jubland].

According to a statement released by Villa Somalia, the president has thanked the regional leaders for their role in the conclusion of the election after their Federal States elected MPs in the parliament.

“Completing the elections is key to stability and state-building efforts in Somalia,” said the statement.

For their part, the regional leaders have congratulated Mohamud on his election win on May 15 and wished him success as he assumes his new responsibilities amid security and humanitarian crisis.

Mohamud broke the record as he becomes the first leader to return to power after winning a rematch against the man [Farmajo] who beat him in the last election held in February 2017 in Mogadishu.

The new president is facing a daunting task – uniting the war-torn nation, defeating Al-Shabaab, reviving the economy, completing the constitution, rebuilding the army, and holding a popular election in four years.

During his previous term between 2012 and 2017, Mohamud’s administration was accused of massive corruption, favoritism, and mismanagement that led to failure in moving the country forward.
