The terse statement reads, “The President-elect decided to take a break after the hectic campaign and election season to rest in Paris and London, preparatory to going to Saudi Arabia for Umrah (Lesser Hajj) and the Ramadan fasting that begins Thursday.

“While away, the President-elect will also use the opportunity to plan his transition programme, he is expected back in the country soon.”

An online platform had reported that the President-elect was flown abroad as a result of ill health.

But in the statement, Rahman debunked the report and “enjoin the media to stop publishing rumours and unsubstantiated claims and to always seek clarifications from our office.”
