Dhivehi Rayithunge Party (DRP) MP Dr Abdulla Mausoom has been appointed General Manager of Sun Island Resort and Spa, a resort owned by Jumhoree Party Leader Gasim Ibrahim.
Gasim’s party allied with the Progressive Party of the Maldives (PPM) which won the recent election.
“Tourism has always been very close at heart. I’ve taken over as the resort’s General Manager yesterday,” Dr Mausoom said, according to Sun Online.
The resort’s previous manager, Mohamed Saeed, was last week appointed Minister of Economic Development.
