The decision to re-assign the Bill received 63 votes in favour, 02 against and 0 abstentions.
In yesterday’s sitting the amendment to give the authority of managing religious lectures in the mosques and arranging Imams to the mosques to the Ministry of Islamic Affairs were not passed.
Maavashu MP Abdul Azeez Jamal AbuBakr said told Miadhu Daily that he will work hard to find a way to include the amendments rejected in yesterday’s Majlis session in the bill re-assigned for further review to the ad-hoc committee.

“I believe that good will come out of it when these matters are clarified. I still have hope,” he said.
