MOGADISHU, Somalia Dec. 31, 2012 (Garowe Online) - Somalia's federal parliament has passed a 2013 budget bill that was previously rejected by Somali MPs on Dec. 26 in Mogadishu, Garowe Online reports.

After lawmakers’ remarks, Mahad Abdalla Awad, the second deputy speaker, said that the parliament quorum is 177 MPs present and announced the vote as 176 MPs voted yes, 1 MP abstained, and no MPs voted against the 2013 budget.

"The 2013 budget has passed," announced Awad, the second deputy speaker.
