As the term of Somalia’s Transitional Federal Government comes to an end this August, 2012, there is hope that the new political dispensation will bring positive outcomes. It will be a new milestone if the transition to embrace the creation of a quality parliament that will elect a respectable speaker and president is achieved. This will send a strong signal that we are finally heading in the right direction and will mark a new chapter for the return of Somalia as a respected partner in the international community. However, the task ahead will demand a new direction with strong leadership and vision.
