New Vice President


The Maldives parliament has approved a new Vice President, Mohamed Waheed Deen as well as 14 Cabinet ministers who have been nominated by President Dr Mohamed Waheed Hassan.

The Cabinet has been in place for several weeks, but this formalises the arrangement. A simple majority was required in the People’s Majlis; the Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP) boycotted the session but the appointments were passed by 45 members in the 77 member chamber.
