Mogadishu (HOL) - The Hirshabelle regional election commission members met in Mogadishu on Monday and elected their chairman and deputy chairman.
Ahmed Hassan Diini ran unopposed for the post of chairman of the 11-member Hirshabelle Electoral Commission and won.
Diini had been previously endorsed by the former President of Hirshablle, Mohamed Abdi Waare.
Halima Mohamed Osman was elected as the deputy chairman of the electoral commission. Her race was also uncontested.
Diini and Osman's election was delayed because of Hirshabelle President Ali Gudlawe Hussein's recent trip to Turkey.
