Somalilandsun – The chairman of Party of Justice and Development (UCID) Hon. Faisal Ali Warabe and his National Party (Wadani) counterpart Hon. Abdirahman Mohammed Abdillahi (Irro) are expected back in the coming days, despite the political temperatures in the country boiling to a point never witnessed before.

It comes at a time when the opposition announced a National Consultation Conference in conjunction with the National Consultation and rectification forum. Their home coming is closely watched by the government which has issued threats of using force should they hold their announced meeting.

They accuse the opposition of disturbing the peace the nation has enjoyed since her independence. The UCID boss is expected back on Monday this week from Dubai UAE while the Wadani boss is arriving on Tuesday from Norway where he has been for the past fortnight.

The Wadani boss who is also the speaker of parliament is going to encounter a divided House that his vice-chairman took advantage of his absence and overturned his earlier decision to reshuffle the parliamentary select committees.
