The government has appointed an office for Ahmed Latheef, the Director General of Transition (DGT) for President-Elect Ibrahim Mohamed Solih.

According to Solih's spokesperson Mariya Ahmed Didi, the government allocated an office space for DGT Latheef at the State Electric Company (STELCO) on Tuesday. She added that the government will soon appoint administrative staff for Latheef as well.

The DGT is tasked with organising an office, technical experts in various fields and living expenses for the president-elect's tenure in office, as per the legislation on presidential transition.

The committees appointed by Solih to manage the transition of power are currently meeting with the ministries and independent institutions.

Mariya stated that the government and state institutions are fully cooperating, and that the transitional process is proceeding smoothly.
