President Dr. Mohamed Muizzu has congratulated the parliamentarians of the 20th People’s Majlis tenure, who took their oath of office on Tuesday.

In a post on social media platform ‘X’, the Maldivian president congratulated the newly elected MPs.

President Muizzu expressed hope to observe the new parliament assembly setting the highest example of accountability and trustworthiness.

He also noted that he is confident that the new parliament tenure will be the most beneficial Majlis in the parliamentary history of the Maldives.

93 parliamentarians elected to the new Majlis tenure took their oath of office at the inaugural sitting of the new Majlis tenure on Tuesday morning.

The ceremony began at 9am and their oath was administered by Chief Justice Ahmed Muthasim Adnan.

The inaugural sitting, which proceeded after the oath-taking ceremony was chaired by MP for Meedhoo constituency Ahmed Siyam Mohamed.

The new parliamentarians took an oath to uphold their faith, the rights of the people and to perform their duties with honesty and integrity in accordance with the Constitution of Maldives, and the law.

MP for Fonadhoo constituency Abdul Raheem Abdulla was elected as the Speaker of the 20th Majlis tenure, alongside MP for Dhiggaru constituency Ahmed Nazim as the Deputy Speaker of Parliament, as the president wanted.

The People’s National Congress (PNC) achieved a landslide victory in the People’s Majlis elections held earlier this year. PNC holds a supermajority in the new parliamentary tenure, with 75 out of 93 MPs representing the ruling party.
