New protocol restricts meeting Somali President

A new protocol at Somali presidential palace is set to limit access to Somali president Hassan Sheikh Mohamud.

Somali members of the parliament are the biggest losers as far as the new protocol are concerned.

National assembly members who had constant access to the president whenever they needed, they will be now forced to write notes of their main purpose of meeting and they have only Thursday and numbers should not exceed ten.

Also in the new etiquette all night meetings with the president were stopped except those requested by Somali leader.

This new restrictions follows few weeks after Hassan Sheikh Mohamud visited Germany for special medical checkup.

Cabinet members and senior government officials are also expected to be affected by this new change of protocol.
