Ali Hashim, a former Maldivian finance minister, is in line to become the new governor of the Maldives Monetary Authority, after a parliamentary committee gave him the go-ahead on September 1.

The MMA’s previous governor, Ahmed Naseer, resigned in July amid allegations he had sought to influence an investigation by the authority’s anti-money laundering unit.

Hashim was nominated for the role on August 28 by president Ibrahim Mohamed Solih, the president’s spokesperson confirmed on Twitter.
