MOGADISHU, Somalia (AP) — Somalia's parliament has approved a smaller, 10-member Cabinet in a vote that serves as an important victory for the country's new prime minister.
Mohmed Sheik Osman Jawari, the parliament speaker, said 219 parliamentarians endorsed the Cabinet in a vote Tuesday. Three voted against and three abstained. The Cabinet, formed by Somali Prime Minister Abdi Farah Shirdon, is expected to be sworn in next week.
The naming of the smaller Cabinet is the latest change undergone by the government this year. A new interim constitution has been passed, a new parliament was seated and a new president was voted in.
The new government must continue to expand its presence in a country worn down by 20 years of conflict. Al-Shabab militants continue to carry out guerrilla attacks in the capital, Mogadishu.
