This forum will provide a roadmap for the immediate, medium-term, and long-term measures to be undertaken," State House Spokesperson Hussein Mohamed said.
All three arms of government affirmed their commitment to performing their functions in a manner that upholds the rule of law, institutional independence, and respect for court decisions.
