My two cents on #Galmudug elections.

1. Potential candidates & their backgrounds,
2. Main stakeholders
3. Galmudug state key in-house dynamics
4. What might be the end product. Thread. 1/17
Galmudug is an important region, politically. A large number of Somalia's political elite happen to hail from this region.

A complicated region; cosmopolitan in nature with regards to clan diversity.

Security wise, reliable with the exception of a few districts. 2/17
The incumbent (Xaaf) faced a lot of challenges partly because of his miscalculated political decisions and partly because of the region's complexity & diversity.

He is way less relevant now. Handed over his role(s) to FGS. 3/17

LIVE THREAD: on Current Political Development in #Somalia. Here is my analysis on what's happening now at the federal parliament. First some background. Deputy speaker Muudey dismissed the Parliamentary Oversight Committee last week for publishing a damning report against MoF
The report accused corruption & misappropriation for Minister of Finance Mr. Beyle. The Admin reacted by bribing several MP's in the Committee with $10k each, in addition to dismissing the committee while Speaker Mursal was away for a personal leave in Turkey.
Upon returning, Mursal wasn't happy with the infringement of the Admin in the Parliament. So, he wrote a letter yesterday reinstating the Committee & calling Muudey's move not only baseless but out of the legal bounds.
