Hanimadhoo constituency MP, Hussein Shahudee told the media, at a press conference held by the Jumhooree Parliamentary Group in front of the Majlis that it is a problem that none of the nominees sent by the President for the post of the Prosecutor General fulfills the conditions set by the review by the Committee on Independent Institutions.

Shahudee also noted that the President of the ruling party, former President Maumoon Abdul Gayoom also raised concern regarding the review of the nominees.
