The new Somalian government has turned a page in history. After long negotiations the Prime Minister, Abdi Farah Shirdon, has nominated the first woman foreign minister. Fauzia Yusuf Haji Adan, has described her nomination as “historic both for the country and for Somalian women. A new chapter has begun in our history, and it will bring us success and prosperity”. According to the BBC corrispondent, the Prime Minister could have problems getting approval by Parliament for his choices because some tribal clans don’t feel sufficiently represented in the new government. The toughest opponent will be the Islamist insurgent group Al-Shabaab, which despite losing key cities in recent months, has total control of vast areas in central and southern Somalia.
