Azima Shakoor, the ruling party’s candidate, closely contested against Azim in the by-election, but preliminary results indicate Azim, the former CEO of Maldives Transport and Contracting Company (MTCC), leading the mayoral race with the highest number of votes.

Azima from the Progressive National Congress (PNC) secured the second position, while Mohamed Saif from ‘The Democrats’ party came in third.
