Somaliland:MPs should meet their obligations

Guurti777The political temperature of the climate in the national politics had indeed upped to a fever that for the last three weeks has had its pitch threatening to tear apart over assemblies.

The populaces who have for long showed and practiced perseverance and understanding have, as they always did, wished that all will come to pass with the same harmony whose chords are struck by amicability. Against all tribulations, they have still portrayed and maintained peaceful stability and continue to do so.

Now that the parliament which was due to resume yesterday have hand another week extended into their recession, the population expects from them sanity, sobriety and to dwell upon what they have been elected to.

For instance, as for national obligations, we still are behind schedule as far as the constituting of the new National Electoral Commission (NEC) committee is concerned.

Letting aside the recent passing of bucks in an ambiguous manner of to and fro counter accusations, this column stands perpetually by the wants, wishes and hopes of its readers who have phoned us in uncountable number of times.

What they need is surely what the country expects and, of course, what the most Somalilanders stand for.

Parliamentarians should put the nation and her people’s aspirations first and foremost.

They should work for the welfare of the country and the people because what they want is development in all sectors of socio-economic and socio-political sectors; just as they want justice, righteousness, prosperity, peaceful stability, private individual and public group security, hope for our posterity etc.

In other words what the people demand and expect from the MPs is for them to cling to their obligations guided by their procedural rules and undertakings to make sure that all is well in as far our political devlopment and stability is concerned.

As for the senior upper house of the senate, the people of course believe that they will live up to their reputation and hold high the banner of our household name of celebrated flag of homemade ‘masters of conciliation’ tag that has made us felt and heard far and wide.

It is in this spirit that we expect unnecessary hulabaloos and minor petty issues that might set our clock back be halted.

And in this same breath, we should join our hands together, and with the same thrust, pull our throttles in order to fly high and straight within the path that our President has always appealed for.

We should rally together to appease our interests of our national aspirations and NOT anything to the contrary.

Meanwhile, as we went to press we were jammed by support of congratulatory messages for the return to the helm of radio management the veteran journalist Mohammed Said.

Perhaps the action goes down well to depict the real perceptions of the members of public, thus showing the yardstick of fathoming performances of senior officials in public offices.

As we wish him well in his endeavours, we thank too the minister for the official’s appointment and, once more, call upon other journalists to emulate the righteous in the media industry.

A group of politicians who were sacked from the government are said to be ganging up in a front meant to wring opposition party Wadani behind the veil of bolstering it.

Reports have it that former senior cabinet ministers Mohammed Noor Arrale Duur, Dr. Hussein Muhummed Mohammed Hoog, Eng. Mohammed Hashi Elmi, Ali Elmi Gelle and Boobe Yusuf Duale were in the frontline of politicians who want to join Wadani in an MoU that would have them wrest the chairmanship’s post or the presidential aspiracy candidature from the incumbent Hon. Abdirahman Irro.

According to our sister paper Dawan, reports have it that the politicians, together with other former senior civil servants such as former RG Ahmed Omar Abdillahi Hamarji, former DG Ahmed Elmi yare, former Energy Agency Chief Ahmed Weli Hawo etc met at Hotel Crown over the weekend hence are said to have put forth three major conditions for joining Wadani.

The conditions which pundits assume that would not go well with the Wadani heirachy had a major bone of contention pinned on either the leadership of the party or the flagbeanership of the presidential aspirancy. The report said that they, for one, are to join the Wadani party as a block made up of all their supporters.

Secondly Wadani has to give them the chairmanship post or the presidential candidature’s one.

And that, thirdly, summarized by the fact that without the acceptance of the accord by Wadani they would not be party of it!

It is believed that the Wadani party hierarchy are expected to meet soon in the capital to ponder over the above and meat this group.

It is said that Mr. Duur who has been spearheading this defection to Wadani could not convince his colleagues to forego the conditions.

Meanwhile, sources closed to hon. Irro’s are said to have termed the conditions as not feasible. However they have it that the issue would be addressed as they may be deemed; be it giving pledges
