MOGADISHU, Dec 2 (Reuters) - Somalia's parliament voted on Monday to sack Prime Minister Abdi Farah Shirdon in a no-confidence vote, the speaker of parliament said, after a row with the president that has paralysed the state and threatened a shaky recovery from war.
The prime minister, who was appointed last year, fell out with President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud over what legislators said was a dispute over the composition of a new cabinet.
Parliament speaker Mohamed Sheikh Osman Jawari said 184 lawmakers voted against the prime minister, while on 65 members supported him. The premier is expected to stay on in a caretaker role until a replacement is found, the speaker said. (Reporting by Abdi Sheikh; Writing by Duncan Miriri; Editing by Edmund Blair)
