New prime minister for Somalia

President of the Transitional Federal Goverment (TFG) Abdullah Yusuf will be selecting a new prime minister tonight. The most likely contender for the position is Nur Hassan Hussein, Secretary General of the Somali Red Cross. He's nearly 70 years old and former Clonel. Hussein like the resigned prime minister comes from Abgal tribe, a Hawiye sub-clan. I'll post more on this later.
