The lawmakers, who were about 50, said they stood up to save the country, which is currently in a state of crisis. The members of the cabinet, who were disqualified, said in a statement that they would work for the unity of the parliament and the resolution of the political crisis.

Lawmaker Mohamud Ahmed Isse (Run-sheeg) who read out a press statement said that the country should be given a free and fair election and called on the Somali people and politicians to work together. Meanwhile, reports indicate that the lawmakers are part of Villa Somalia’s plan to extend the term, a move strongly opposed by opposition parties and some administrations in the country.

The political situation in the country is tense, exacerbated by the ouster of former Prime Minister Hassan Ali Khaire.
