The political transition is a significant turning point in Somalia's history and presents an opportunity for real positive change in the war-torn nation. This video presents the voices of hope of Somalis living and working in Mogadishu, from the Deputy Prime Minister and Speaker of Parliament, to artists, students and IDPs.
On 10 September 2012, Somalia announced its first constitutionally elected president in 42 years, President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud. The transition to a new government evidenced strong civil and political will to transform the country into a nation that is known for peace, not conflict. It followed the approval of a provisional constitution on August 2012 that will guide the development of the new government over the next four years, and pave the way for a referendum where the country's citizens will vote for a permanent constitution.
