After completing its second session, Parliament has adjourned for a recess, marking the end of the recent legislative period.
Speaker Mohamed Nasheed officially announced the conclusion of the session, which focused on deliberations surrounding the appointment of members to parliamentary committees. Despite the Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP), the ruling party, requesting an extension to address pending significant parliamentary matters, the second session came to a close.
Several important issues remain unresolved, including the reconstitution of parliamentary committees and the consideration of motions of no confidence against various officials such as Parliament Speaker Mohamed Nasheed, Deputy Speaker Eva Abdulla, Attorney General Ibrahim Riffath, and Foreign Minister Abdullah Shahid.
Commencing on May 18, this year’s second session of Parliament comprised a total of 14 parliamentary sessions. Following the recess, the legislative body will reconvene for the third session, scheduled to begin in August.
