Breaking News:

The Maldives rejoin the Commonwealth

1 February 2020: The Commonwealth welcomed its 54th member state after The Maldives’ application for re-admission was approved. 
This marks the end of a process that began 13 months ago, in December 2018, when President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih wrote to the Commonwealth Secretary-General, Baroness Scotland, expressing the country’s interest in re-joining. The Secretary-General subsequently consulted with all 53 Commonwealth members and received no objections.

Maldivian Ambassador to St James’s Court thus becomes its High Commissioner, as a sign for Commonwealth membership.
