DHUSAMAREB – The Galmudug regional parliament has on Wednesday approved the establishment of the regional police force.
The meeting chaired by the speaker Mohamed Nur Ga’al, unanimously endorsed the Galmudug Police Force Bill submitted by the Ministry of Security led by Ahmed Moalim Fiqi.
Minister Fiqi thanked the state parliament for their overwhelming support for the bill in which his ministry submitted to parliament last week.
“The adoption of the Galmudug Police bill submitted by the Ministry to the Parliament on 13 October 2020 is a victory for the people of Galmudug and the beginning of the formation of the Galmudug Security Forces through a legal procedure. “The Ministry would also like to thank the experts who helped tirelessly to formulate the new law.” The Ministry of Security said in a statement.
Federal Members are allowed to form and manage their own regional police force following agreement reached in Baidoa on July 2016.
The regional police forces have a limited mandate that allows them to operate in autonomy at the administrative level.
