Discussions have been held with the Maldives National Defence Force (MNDF), over the arrangements for the swearing-in ceremony of President-elect Dr. Mohamed Muizzu and the incoming Vice President.

The discussions were joined by senior officials of the People’s Majlis house and relevant officials of MNDF.

This is the second time discussions have been held with MNDF officials and parliament officials regarding the matter.

Several rounds of discussions have been held with the Office of the President-elect and other relevant members of the People’s Majlis regarding the schedule of the swearing-in ceremony of the President-elect and the Vice President.

The swearing-in ceremony is to be held at the Republic Square in capital Malé City on November 17, which falls on a Friday.

The People’s Majlis recently extended invitations to international media outlets that wish to cover the ceremony.

The parliament revealed that they would provide assistance to any international media outlets that wish to fly to Maldives to cover the event.

It has also been assured that the parliament would assist in important administrative arrangements to obtain visas and other required permits for accommodation.

The parliament has however noted that the attending media must bear the expenses for travel, food, accommodation and other expenses.

International media outlets that wish to cover the event will be required to notify the People’s Majlis before October 31.

Dr. Muizzu, who won the Presidential race 2023 against incumbent President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih, will be the eighth president of the archipelago nation.

The president-elect will also be the first president to be sworn in after winning both rounds of an election.

Foreign dignitaries and world leaders are also expected to attend November’s ceremony.
