Former President Dr Mohamed Waheed has informed local media that he has taken up a part-time job as a Visiting Distinguished Fellow Lecturer at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy in Singapore.
Waheed assumed office in the controversial transfer of power of February 7, 2012 and presided the Maldives for a period of 19 months.
He stated that he will be teaching in the University for about one week every month, and that he has decided to stay in the post for a duration of one year at a minimum. Waheed added that this is his “official return to the field of education after [his] stint in politics”. He detailed that he would be mainly residing in the Maldives and Malaysia during his year teaching in Singapore.
In addition to teaching modules in public policy and executive education, Waheed will also be engaging in various research programs in the university.
