HARGEISA – Waddani party leader Hersi Ali Haji Hassan told Himlo Media Group on Sunday that he hopes his party’s Presidential Candidate and Somaliland Parliament Speaker, Abdirahman Mohamed Abdullahi Irro, will resign from the speakership ‘soon’.
“We are currently in the process of getting ready for the Presidential Election. Abdirahman promised to resign from his post, but this is a parliamentary matter, and I am not a member of parliament,” Hassan said.
“I hope this issue will be resolved soon and end on a positive note,” Hassan added.
Irro has promised on several occasions to resign from the speakership.
Last week, Irro said he will resign from the speakership ‘once the date for Somaliland’s Presidential Election is announced’.
Somaliland’s National Electoral Commission announced the date for the Presidential Election on Saturday. President Silanyo also issued a Presidential Decree on Sunday confirming the date.
Irro has yet to update the public on his resignation plans, despite facing calls from parliamentarians for his immediate resignation.
