Dr. Saud appointed Acting Secretary General of Jumhoori Party

Dr. Mohamed Saud has been appointed on Monday as the Acting General Secretary of business tycoon and 2013 election’s second runner-up candidate Gasim Ibrahim’s Jumhoori Party (JP).

“[JP General Secretary Hassan] Shah is now in a party slot as a state minister in this government. He must give time to government duties as well. There is a lot of ongoing work at the moment due to the two approaching elections. This means there is a lot of internal administrative work of the party that needs to be attended to,” Saud said in an interview to local news website SunOnline.

He stated that he will remain in the position until the party’s council decides otherwise.
