PA Secretary General appointed to Elections Commission

The Secretary General of the People’s Alliance (PA), the party of the former President’s half brother Abdulla Yameen, has been appointed the General Secretary of the Elections Commission (EC).

Ahmed Shareef Adam was appointed to the post out of 25 applicants who applied.

“Only five applicants fit the criteria devised by the commission. Out of them, one did not fit the criteria already set under the regulation of the commission and another application was withdrawn. So we interviewed only three applications, out of whom Shareef scored the highest and got the job,” the EC’s Executive Director Ismail Habeeb told newspaper Haveeru.

The PA announced that Shareef was resigning from his post at the party following his appointment.
