The amended law states that the post of Vice-Chancellor must be elected through the MNU council and until the new council was formed the current posts of Vice-Chancellor will remain as it is.
The amended law also states that the council must be formed within 30 days of the law being published in the gazette. The termination of the two Deputy Chancellors today come before the period of 30 days lapsed. President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih has also appointed Dr Hassan Hameed as the Chancellor of MNU and Dr Mohamed Shareef as the Vice-Chancellor of MNU yesterday.
