The new Commissioner of Prisons Abdulla Munaz had previously served at Maldives National Defence Force (MNDF) for 24 years until he retired at 2011 at the rank of First Lieutenant.

The new Managing Director of WAMCO, Adam Mohamed, is a member of religiously conservative Adhaalath Party, a member of the ruling coalition.
