The Speaker of Somalia's Senate has been re-appointed, a key point for the country to hold presidential elections.
Abdi Hashi Abdullahi was re-appointed by the 54- member seat upper house during a franchise that happened in an extremely guarded compound in the capital, Mogadishu.
His nomination translates that all remaining part prior to presidential elections can come about as franchise for the Speaker of the 275-member lower chamber, the legislative assembly which brandish more dominance and authority in Somalia.
The country uses a complicated and associative democracy and political parties do no take part in contest elections. Nor do equal representation in voting take place.
Instead, the lower chamber is elected by representatives constituted by ancient clan and members of civil population who are chosen by regional district administrators. Senators stand for Somalia's five provincial states. And it is the bicameral houses that vote for head of state.
The country has skipped numerous target dates to wind up general elections, leading to penalty against MPs by the US.
Contentions existing between the country's president and prime minister have electrified the postponements, which extremists have taken advantage of by unleashing offensive in Mogadishu and aiming electoral envoys.
