"New Cabinet Named."

UN Integrated Information Networks


Hasan Abshir Farah, the Somali Prime Minister, finally named the members of the cabinet for the Transitional National Government. The Transitional National Government is the most stable and productive governmental structure that Somalia has had in the the past 10 years. The Transitional government has faced many internal problems during its formation since the clans that exist within Somalia have often been in conflict and disagreement with each other, which has made the formation of a cohesive government rather difficult.

Although in theory the cabinet that was formed should include members of each of the clans within the boundaries of the country it does not achieve this goal. Internal disagreements have prevented the inclusion of some factions but overall the cabinet maintains "clan equilibrium" among all the various groups that exist in Somalia.
