Puntland has stood firm on the implementation of the amendment of the constitution Hassan Sheikh revoked the constitution that was agreed upon, and taking a new constitution out of his pocket.

The amendment to the constitution that came into effect yesterday is also facing strong opposition from the former leaders and opposition politicians, and its implementation is being questioned.

However, the Somali Presidency has used bribery fraud in approving these four chapters, especially Chapter 4, which contains the most important articles of the constitution, especially those that touch on the politics and governance of the country, which was important to the Presidency, and it is the one that was rejected.

If the Somali people cannot rule themselves and they have current president Hassan Sheikh Mohamoud who is defrauding the constitution then Hassan Sheikh forget Somalia still is controlled by the UN then Catriona Laing will replace Hassan Sheikh according to sources by Somali officials told Somali Times.
