MALE, Oct. 2 (Xinhua) -- The Maldives Civil Service Commission on Tuesday appointed a new director general of transition to coordinate the transfer of power after Ibrahim Mohamed Solih won the recently concluded presidential elections.

The commission appointed Ahmed Latheef as the new director general at an event attended by commission members and senior staff.

Latheef previously served as the Maldives ambassador to China.

According to Maldivian law, a transitional director general should be appointed immediately after the Maldives electoral watchdog announces the final polls results of a presidential election.
