The president of Galmudug state of somalia Ahmed Dualleh Guelleh Haaf has appointed a 13-member technical team to prepare for the state general elections.
Haaf said the appointment was done in consultation with the Ministry of Interior and will be tasked with laying down the framework for the elections of a new state parliament.
It is not however clear when the state elections will take place. President Haaf’s term expired in July but a tussle with the Federal Government led to delays of the elections.
Haaf replaced Abdikarin Guled who resigned in 2016 after close to two years in office.
Haaf called on the team to work professionally and independently.
