Somali Prime Minister, Omar Abdirashid Ali Sharmarke has congratulated Ali Abdulahi Osoble for his election as President of the newly formed regional state.

"I am very pleased to congratulate Ali Abdulahi Osoble on his election as President of Hir-Shabelle State and also his Deputy Ali Abdullahi Hussein (Guudlawe). 

The victory indicates the confidence of people of Hirshabelle in you,” said Sharmarke. 

The Premier urged both the president and his deputy to serve people of the two regions and lead the young state to a long period of peace and prosperity. 

On Monday afternoon, over 90 state parliamentarians casted their votes for the presidential candidates contesting in the election. 

The newly elected president garnered 61 votes to secure the presidency with his opponent got 36 votes. 

Osoble who served as education minister in the government led by Ali Mohamed Ghedi in 2005 will have the immediate task of unifying and seeking common ground with the opposition which stood strongly against his candidature. 

Analysts say Osoble can only appease critics by forming an inclusive government that mirrors the wishes of the people of both regions. 

Jowhar town, which hosted the state formation process for Hir-Shabelle was designated to be the administrative capital of the newly formed regional State.
