Attorney General’s office fails to approve 2000 municipal regulations: LGA

Two-thousand Local Government Authority (LGA) municipal regulations have yet to be approved by the Attorney General’s office, local media has reported.

LGA Vice President Hussain Shujau stated the lack of approvals demonstrated an unwillingness among the government and President Dr Mohamed Waheed’s cabinet to allow local government mechanisms to function, according to local media.

Only eight regulations have been approved thus far.

Shaujau previously accused Waheed’s government of “harassment”, claiming local councils had also noted a lack of cooperation from the state.
