Galmudug parliament has appointed a committee to oversee the elections of a new president.
Mohamed Hussein Tahlil and Abdirahim Ahmed Egal were appointed chairman and vice-chairman respectively.
The appointment of the two follows a tussle on who should lead the process with the Alhu Sunna faction demanding the chair should come from its side.
The committee will now proceed to set timelines and conduct the election of a new president. To be elected, one will need to secure50%+1 of the 89 votes which equates to the number of MPs in the state assembly.
