Al Jazeera English - Africa - Somali president steps down

Al Jazeera English - Africa - Somali president steps down: "Somalia's president has resigned after months of political infighting within the UN-backed transitional government.

Abdullahi Yusuf Ahmed has been under pressure since the parliament last week blocked his attempts to dismiss Nur Hassan Hussein, the prime minister.

'As I promised when you elected me on October 14, 2004, I would stand down if I failed to fulfil my duty, I have decided to return the responsibility you gave me,' he told legislators in Baidoa, where the administration is based, on Monday.

'The speaker will take over my responsibility.'

The government has failed to restore security to Somalia, which has been without an effective central government since 1991.

'Most of the country was not in our hands and we had nothing to give our soldiers. The international community has also failed to help us,' Yusuf told parliament in his resignation speech."

their vice, certain members of our government
will lie, cheat, and steal to continue their
dysfunctional and deadly relationship with the
KSA — a relationship that is rotting this nation
and its leaders from the inside out.
