President reappoints Sawad as Attorney General


President Mohamed Nasheed has reappointed Dr Ahmed Ali Sawad as Attorney General (AG), following Sawad’s resignation on Friday.

The Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that cabinet members rejected by parliament could not remain in their posts. Sawad was among the members of cabinet not endorsed by the opposition majority parliament.

The president has appointed Advisor on Political Affairs Hassan Afeef as Minister of Home Affairs, and promoted Deputy Minister of Education Shifa Mohamed to the top post.
