The final decision on the outcome of the presidential election, with both houses of parliament voting for the president of Somalia for the next four years.

The election took place on Sunday, May 15, 2022 in Mogadishu, and was won by Hassan Sheikh Mohammad with 214 votes..

Somalia’s new President, Hassan Sheikh Mahmoud, has won a landslide victory in round three of the presidential election after a bitter rivalry with incumbent President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo..

The turnout in parliament was 327, with Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo receiving 110 votes out of a total of 327, and three missing, according to the electoral commission.

Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo, is leaving office, having been in office since February 2017.

President-elect Hassan Sheikh Mahmoud previously served as President of Somalia from 2012 to 2017, but in February 2017, Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo, who ran in the by-elections, won by a landslide 184 votes. Hassan received at that time only 90 votes.

But in the February 2017 election, six years later, the final round of the presidential election between Somali President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo and Hassan Sheikh Mahmoud was again contested, with Hassan Sheikh winning a landslide victory in the May 15, 2022 election, which appeared to be revenge, and left behind by a landslide victory in the election six years ago.

The victorious President Hassan Sheikh Mahmoud was one of 34 candidates in Somalia’s May 15, 2022 presidential election, all of whom were lined up before the third round.

The election was contested by the largest number of candidates for the presidency of Somalia, making it one of the toughest contests in the country, with large sums of money being spent to secure parliamentary votes. Behind the scenes, they were led by foreign governments that spent millions of dollars, splitting the candidates, and each wanting to field their own candidate who spent a lot of money.

Although May 15, 2022 was described as Somalia’s most contested presidential election, not a one-person, one-vote election, the race reached several rounds, lasting more than ten consecutive hours.

Somali President-elect Hassan Sheikh, who has been in office for the next four years, is no stranger to the post and was President of Somalia from 2012 to 2017.

Hassan was born in 1955 in Jalalaqsi district of Hiraan region, Somalia, between the ages of 66 and 67, and became the first president of a Somali government to be re-elected in the last three decades.

He is one of the candidates who have spent a lot of money to win the presidency and is widely regarded as one of Turkey’s leading allies. And Turkey is one of the main rivals in Somali politics.

The President-elect, who handed over the Mogadishu Port to the Turkish government during his tenure from 2012 to 2017, also had good relations with Djibouti, a political broker in Somalia as well as some Arab countries.

Hassan Sheikh is also a member of the Damul-jadid religious group “, an organization that has been heavily involved in Somali politics, and the Damul-jadid group has significant economic and trade power and political ties mainly in the Arab world and elsewhere.

However, it is unpredictable where the President-elect is heading in Somalia’s politics, which has been overshadowed by bombings, chaos, conspiracies, corruption, and conflict, causing famine and economic hardship.
