NLF delays expanding upper seats with new 18 members
Somalia’s National Leadership Forum (NLF) on Thursday announced that it reversed its earlier decision to add 18 new members with the old number of upper house which was 54 according to Somali draft Constitution, KNN reports.
The NLF released a communique last week and suggested that an expand on Upper House by 18 seats, bringing the total number of members to 72. The Somali Constitution only allows for 54 seats.
The decision met a heavy cretinism by the international partners and local forces.
