President Abdikarim Hussein Guuleed of Galmudug State is today expected to join the ongoing National Leaders Forum discussions in the Somali capital after undergoing a successful heart surgery in India.
According to a brief statement he posted on his official Facebook page, Guuleed expressed enthusiasm in resuming his leadership role in moving forward the NLF deliberations at this crucial time.
Vice President Mohamed Hashi Arrabey has been representing the Galmudug administration in the ongoing electoral talks during the President’s absence.
However, Guuleed is expected to sign the final National Leadership Forum communiqué, according to insider sources.
Somali political leaders have made some significant breakthrough towards the implementation of the 2016 electoral process, in the wake of a longstanding deadlock that had threatened the country’s smooth transition to political stability by at least agreeing on the election dates.
