Saturday May 7, 2022

Mogadishu (HOL) - Former federal minister for information, Abdukhaadir Hussein Mohamed Jahweyne, announced his presidential candidacy in Mogadishu on Thursday.

Jahweyne said he is most concerned about the country's deteriorating situation, the ongoing political concerns, and the unfulfilled promises he said the country's political leaders are regularly making.‎

‎Mr. Abdukhaadir Jahweyne said in his manifesto that these issues pose a severe threat that is different from the previous ones.‎

"With my work experience, support from Somali intellectuals and a sense of duty to rescue my country, I am determined to stand up for the country, and be saved from political chaos. I will ensure that the Somali people have a qualified, active and capable leader in the country," said the candidate.‎

He said that his priority would be to stabilize the country. He noted that Somalia's judiciary needs to be strengthened and independent. He also pledges to tackle economic reform to facilitate investment and increase productivity. 

Finally, he promised to deliver good governance structure and involve young people in the political process. 

Abdulkadir Hussein Mohamed was a minister in the Sheikh Sharif Sheikh Ahmed's TFG government.

‎Yesterday, the Joint Committee for the presidential election preparation announced that it would take place in Mogadishu on the 15th of this month, which will end the uncertainty of the overdue elections in Somalia.‎
