Grant me chance to hand you ‘office’, booted PM urges successor

Storyline:National News

I should hand over ‘office’ to you instead of my former deputy, immediate ex-prime minister Hasan Khaire has told the incoming premier Mohamed Roble .

In a letter addressed to Roble seen by Goobjoog News, Khaire has implored upon his successor to be granted the chance to formally hand over office despite having left the seat about two months ago.

But in a Facebook post, acting sports minister Khadija Diriye who is a member of the transition committee said acting PM Mahdi Gulaid will hand over office to the new PM.

Roble is expected to officially take office today following his approval by the Lower House on Thursday. Former deputy PM Mahdi Gulaid has been acting as PM since his boss was kicked out in a surprise no-confidence motion July 25.

The new PM will move in to appoint a new cabinet which also requires approval by the Lower House.
