Baidoa (AX) – Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud opened the National Consultative Council assembly on Thursday in Baidoa.

Federal and regional state leaders attended the assembly, which includes Prime Minister Hamsa Abdi Barre, his deputy Salah Jama, and the presidents of the states of South West, Hirshabelle, Jubbaland, Galmudug, and Banadir sector, specifically Abdiazis Hassan Mohamed, Ali Gudlawe Hussein, Ahmed Mohamed Islam, Ahmed Abdi Kariye, and Yusuf Hussein Jim’ale, respectively.

However, Puntland President Said Abdullahi Deni seriously isn’t attending the convention. In a announcement launched on January 9, Puntland introduced that it really is “now acting as an independent government,” accusing the federal authorities of trying to fabricate a centralized federal authorities.

During the assembly, the leaders focus on the construction of country wide safety, notably the continued anti-al Shabab offensive, and the federalization strategy of finance and elections on the federal and regional degrees.

This marks the fifth National Consultative Council assembly since President Mohamud was elected on May 15, 2022.
