Somalia's Prime Minister Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed has unveiled a new Cabinet of 18 ministers include three former ministers on Friday, Radio Garowe Reports.

Only two ministers from the previous government are included in the new ministerial line-up. Minister of Finance, Hussein Abdi Halane, an effective administrator who is well-regarded by the international community retains the enlarged Ministry of Finance which now will be called Ministry of Finance and Treasury.

“The Somali people and the international community were waiting for a competent and credible Somali cabinet, and I am happy to appoint this lean but capable cabinet. I call on my fellow countrymen to work with and assist this fine men and women tasked to revive the Somali State.” Prime Minister said in a statement.

Somali lawmarkers appointed the prime minister following a dispute between President Ahmed and parliament speaker Sharif Hassan Sheikh Aden over whether lawmakers should cast ballots openly.

The Somali transitional government controls only a small bit of the capital, Mogadishu, and is battling insurgent groups. TFG failed to assert its authority on the Somali territory, 80 percent of which is currently controlled by the Shebab.
