Ibu hints Supreme Court must make decision on date to swear-in

President-elect and Hinnavaru MP Ibrahim Mohamed Solih (Ibu) has hinted a final decision on the date he takes the oath of office should be made by the Supreme Court.

Lawmakers this Sunday morning debated on a motion to allow the President-elect to swear-in on November 11. The parliament is currently divided over whether Ibu should take his oath of office on November 11 or November 17.

Speaking during the debate, Ibu said he does not want to give anyone the opportunity to be able to claim he swore into office unconstitutionally.

“I cannot condone giving anyone the opportunity to, later on, claim I took my oath of office as the President of the upcoming presidential term unconstitutionally,” said Ibu.
