Former President of Somalia, Hassan Sheikh Mohamud has been re-elected after a final vote that was only open to the country’s Members of Parliament MPs.

 

Mohamud defeated the current president, Mohamed Abudallahi Farmajo, who has been in office since 2017.

 

The ballot was limited to Somalia’s 328 MPs due to security concerns over holding a wider election, and one of them did not cast a vote.

He received 214 votes, defeating Farmajo who won 110 votes, while three MPs were reported to have spoiled their ballots.

 

The result marks a comeback for Mohamud, who served between 2012 and 2017 before he was defeated by Farmajo.
