Political Stand off
Lower House Speaker Mohamed Osman Jawari has been accused by lawmakers of abuse of power and obstruction of constitutional reform. He has, however, survived a motion of no-confidence.
Jawari has instead blamed President Mohamed Farmajo and Prime Minister Hassan Ali Khaire for escalating the political crisis in the Horn of Africa nation by asking him to resign.
