President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih has asked the Parliament for approval to appoint Ali Faiz as the new Maldivian ambassador to Sri Lanka.

The letter seeking Ali Faiz’s appointment was sent to the Parliament’s Foreign Relations Committee for vetting on Monday.

President Solih nominated Ali Faiz to the position after former ambassador to Sri Lanka, Omar Abdul Razzak was appointed as Maldivian ambassador to Belgium and the Mission of Maldives to the European Union (EU) in May.

Ali Faiz is the President of the Police Board. He had served as Chief of Protocol at the President’s Office and as Maldives Industrial Fisheries Company (MIFCO)’s Managing Director back during former President Mohamed Nasheed’s administration.
