The Spokesperson of the President’s Office, Miuvaan Mohamed, on Wednesday, stated that salary increments pledged by President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih for university lecturers will be announced in the upcoming two to three days.

President Solih, while delivering his presidential address in February, said that salary increments for university lecturers will be announced in March.

When questioned regarding the matter – Miuvaan assured that the president would fulfill his pledge.

He further stated that the salaries of health sector workers will be increased in May.

University lecturers demanded a salary increment following positive changes brought to the salaries of school teachers last year – expressing concern after being left out.

Employees of the Maldives National University (MNU) staged a silent protest last year – demanding for salary increment.
