Somalia: Favori LLC to Be Discharged From Managing Mogadishu Airport

Legislators from the Somali Parliament convened today for their ordinary session in Mogadishu and held a confidence vote for Favori LLC, the Turkish-owned company that manages Aden Adde International Airport.

120 parliamentarians voted for Favori LLC to be discharged from their duties and 2 casted for the company to retain management of the airport while 13 lawmakers sustained in the vote. Despite the fact that many other legislators were absent from today's sitting, parliamentarians count the vote as valid.

The Speaker of Parliament Mohamed Sheikh Osman (Jawari) chaired the session today and declared that the agreement signed between the Federal Government of Somalia and Favori LLC in September 2013 will be terminated and the employees are expected to vacate the airport premises when a date has been set for exit.

Mr. Jawari announced the final decision after Members of Parliament have brought up the motion for the last couple of days to cease the deal with Favori LLC.
