Somaliland Cabinet Reshuffled Again

Voiced by Amazon Polly

Muse Bihi Abdi, the Somaliland president, reshuffled, dismissed, and made new appointments to his Council of Ministers on Sunday.

Suleiman Awad Ali Bukhari, the Minister of Transport and Road Development, was sacked by President Bihi, who then named Rabbi Abdi Mohamed in his place.

In addition, Mohamud Warsame Jama has been named as the new Fisheries Minister.

President Bihi picked Faisal Mohamud Said Abdulle as Somaliland’s Deputy Minister of Trade and Tourism and Abdinasir Aydid Mohamed Farah as the nation’s Deputy Minister of Agricultural Development.

Finally, Muse Ibrahim Yusuf Salaf was named to hold the position of Deputy Minister of Road Development and Transportation.

One day after President Bihi signed into law two crucial revised election laws – the Regulation of Organizations and Political Parties Law (No. 14/2023) and the Election and Voter Registration Law (No. 91/2023), the new ministries were appointed.

This legislation calls for the integration of Somaliland’s November 2024 presidential and political association elections, which were previously authorized by the Parliament.

For the past two years, the topic of election legislation has dominated political discourse in Somaliland, and sparked a divisive national conversation that pitted different facets of society against one another.

November 2024 is the date set by the chairman of Somaliland’s National Electoral Commission (SLNEC) for the dual elections.
