On Friday, the Speaker of Somali Federal Parliament Mohamed Osman Jawari returned to Mogadishu after an official visit to Italy.
The returning delegation led by Mr.Jawari was welcomed by dozens of MP’s and government officials at Mogadishu’s Aden Ade International Airport.
Mr.Jawari returns to Mogadishu amid political tensions within the Federal Parliament. Last week the Parliament session was canceled three times after majority of MP’s refused to attend the meeting.
The MP’s were due to question several ministers including the ministers of interior, Security and ports.
Many MPs are divided over wide ranging of issues regarding the Federal constitution, implementation of Federal states, the management of financial institutions and the security situation in the country.
