The new Prime Minister of Somalia has been fully accepted with full votes and not a single rejection. Mr Shirdon now starts the process of selecting ministers to run his cabinet. This is another major chapter in our progress.
The MPs unanimously backed the ex-businessman, nominated by newly elected President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud.
Before the vote Mr Shirdon said he would form "an effective government to deal with current situation".
What the new prime minister now has to do is make the right choices in selecting ministers. We cannot afford to lose time in this wonderful progress and select figures that are not qualified to the task. Mr shirdon’s cabinet must consist of ministers who are loyal to the nation as a whole and have only Somalia as their main intention. Gone should be the days of greed and corruption.
We have a nation to rebuild which has a vast amount of resources with population of only 10+ Million Somalis. The time has arrived to re-brand Somalia and focus on making our proud country and its citizens, to live prosperous.
Mohamed Hassan (Dj)
