(Sunatimes) The public will begin to breathe fresh air following today’s
election that ended of electing a great man, a true Somali for the speaker of
the house.Mr. Jawari is a man believed to bring stability and rules of law in a
notorious parliament known to be one of the most chaotic parliament in the
world as previous speakers veered from their traditional role of impartiality,
and neutralityleading to a political standstill that had paralyzed the
nation.Somaliais a country that has suffered
enormously in the hands of its rogue citizens. It is a celebration for all
peace loving Somalis to witness such a great change in the Somali politics.
Jawari’s election is also a sigh relief and a happy end for UNPOS, the
international community and the public who knew the process to end the
transition to be fraudulent, but still hoped for a better outcome.
Jawari has a long career of public service. He has held various positions
including a ministerial level in the pre-civil war governments. He has been a
teacher, an educator, a politician and a constitutional expert. Mr. Jawari has
earned the public trust and that of the international community and is the
right man for the job. He brings a wealth of experience to the job. He is very competent,
dynamic and highly knowledgeable. As a member of constitutional expert I had
the opportunity to work with Mr. Jawari. His friends describe him as a hard
worker, but for me, he is a workaholic. He will deliver any action items
assigned to him the next morning even if he had a late night meeting. During
our assignments he exceeded my expectations and the expectation of my other
his leadership we expect the Somali parliament to reform itself, do its job in
lieu of engaging in unending conflict with the executive branches of the
government. Nevertheless, there is a daunting task a head and the road to
stability will not be smooth. It will require patience, commitment to succeed
and focusing mainly on the commonalities rather than the differences. He will
need to build a strong team to achieve the real democratic reform for the
parliament. He is a good listener, someone who can work with anybody without
any reservations and above all he is not a polarizer. He understands the
ailment of the Somali parliament and will for sure bring the right remedy.
he is the right man for the job, his success will be determined by the new
president because it is a team work that will lead to a stable and a
a great leader for a president,Somalia’s misery will be a history of the past.
So farSomaliaseems to be blessed after today’s election of the speaker of the
house and hope the blessing to continue leading to an election of a President
with a great vision, who can reconcile, and bring people together.May Allah
grant us a president who is committed to save this nation ofSomaliafrom
collapsing further into chaos? Amen.
credit of today’s victory goes to the Somali parliamentarians who stood and
delivered the much needed hope. But remember, the public is expecting for a
double victory similar to what we have witnessed in the summer Olympics
inLondonwith Mo Farah winning the 5 and 10,000M gold medals.If the public’s
call is honored, a new page of Somali history is about to begin.
