Speaker Mudey: The impeachment motion still stands

By Asad Cabdullahi Mataan

The first Deputy Chairman of the House of the People, Mr. Abdiweli Ibrahim Mudey, last night spoke to the press again about the status of the motion against Speaker Mohamed Osman Jawari.

Mudey stated that nothing has changed legally in terms of the process of the no-confidence motion against Speaker Jawari, and said it is expected to be brought before the house on Saturday.

Deputy Muudey further said the motion against the Speaker was to be voted within 10 working days from the date the motion was tabled, and therefore the motion is set for 31 March 2018.

The statement of Deputy Speaker of Parliament came after MPs supporting Speaker Jawari announced that the deadline of the motion had elapsed thus calling on the Speaker to resume his duties normally. In a Joint statement, Pro-Jawari lawmakers called on the Speaker to resume the work saying he was the legitimate leader of the House as the proposition failed to meet the deadline.
