The president of the republic of Somalia Hassan Sheikh Mohamud was asked to appoint new prime minister within one month after the federal parliament of Somalia fired prime Minister Abdiweli.

He is expected to appoint the third prime minister after he fell out with two prime ministers including the out-going prime minister.

153 MPS voted in favour of the no confidence motion against PM Abdiweli, 80 rejected while two MPs abstained.

The outgoing PM has not given comment about his firing but he is expected to hold press conference.
