AMISOM daily media monitoring, 05 Jun 2015
Somalia’s constitution review commission has a new boss following the appointment yesterday of Mohamed Dahir Afrax. The cabinet approved constitutional affairs minister’s nomination of Mr. Dahir to take the place of Mrs. Asho Gelle who resigned from the post earlier. Asho left the office citing lack of cooperation and interference by the Federal Government as well as budgetary constraints that made difficult the commission’s work. The commission’s time is running out as they are expected to compile the interim constitution before 2016 when it is expected to be subjected to a referendum.
