Somali parliament on Monday unanimously voted unanimously a legislation banning the UAE ports operator DP World after signing a controversial agreement with Somaliland and Eithopia .

In a hotly debated session of the first meeting of the 3rd session of the Somali Parliament declared the deal over Berbera port as “null and void”, and called for the ban of DP World from Somalia.

“DP World had deliberately infringed on the country’s sovereignty there for it has been banned from operating in the country,” reads resolution issued after the session.

The resolution said the agreement between Ethiopia, Somaliland and DP World was against the country’s Provisional Constitution.“Any agreement engaged in a country or organization which is not based on the provisional constitution of Somalia is null and void, therefore all the deals signed with Dubai Port World are invalid as they are against the country’s constitution, foreign investment regulations and other regulations of the country,” the resolution ruled.

168 lawmakers voted in favor of the Legislation which will now go to the Upper House of Parliament before being signed into law by Somali President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo.
