Alhu Sunna releases list of MPs for Galmudug parliament

Storyline:National News

Alhu Sunna Wal Jamaa has released its list of 20 MPs to sit in the next Galmudug parliament following a deal reached last month with the Federal Government.

According to the deal, the group which had been at loggerheads with Galmudug administration until last December when they formed a unity government was allotted 20 seats to be distributed within clans using a set matrix.

However, the new list which Alhu Sunna has released and presented to the international community does not follow to the latter the distribution matrix. According to the matrix, Alhu Sunna was granted one slot for every sub-clan with less than 8 MPs and two for sub-clans with 8 MPs in the current Parliament. For sub-clans with 12 MPs, Alhu Sunna would take 2 seats while for those with 15, the group would get 3 seats.

But the new list does not necessarily conform with the set formula. For example, Ayr sub-clan which Alhu Sunna draws its main strength from will cede 5 seats to the group instead of one while Saleban which would have surrendered one seat ended up with two seats for Alhu Sunna.

The following is the list of selected MPs and respective sub-clans
