GAROWE (Somaliguardian) – Puntland leader Saeed Abdullahi Deni announced his candidacy on Saturday for an upcoming presidential election scheduled to be held in Somalia’s capital, in an apparent challenge against his rival, the country’s incumbent President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo.

The leader of Somalia’s northeastern semi-autonomous region held a meeting with MPs elected in his region on Saturday after which he officially announced his plans to run for Somalia’s President following months-long speculations about his bid for the top office.

He is not the only candidate running against Farmajo in the upcoming election. However, former presidents, ex-Premier, and other well-known politicians are among the aspirants, who have long been criticizing the government’s failure to conclude corruption-marred, long-delayed polls on a self-established deadline.
