MOGADISHU, Somalia – Lawmakers in Somalia have voted to oust the country's prime minister and his Cabinet after 14 months in office.
Parliament Speaker Sheik Osman Jawari said that lawmakers on Monday voted 184-65 to oust Prime Minister Abdi Farah Shirdon and his 10-member Cabinet.
Jawari said the prime minister will remain in office until President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud nominates a new prime minister, who will then have 30 days to appoint a new Cabinet.
The parliament vote came after disputes emerged between Shirdon, a former businessman, and Mohamud. Lawmakers said that Shirdon refused to put the president's picks into his Cabinet.
Shirdon has served as prime minister since October 2012.
