Malé, Maldives – Spokesperson of the President’s Office Mabrook Azeez said that the current governing party MDP, requires two terms in power to ensure complete development in Maldives.

While speaking on the “Fashaairu” programme if Raajje tv, Spokesperson Mabrook said that due to the current situation in Maldives, there have been some delays in the development projects. He further went on to say that no President had been able to rule for two consecutive terms since democracy was established in Maldives while noting that this becomes an obstruction to the country’s development planned by that administration.

In addition to this, Spokesperson Mabrook likened the Maldives’ situation to that of America where President Barack Obama is known to have ensured the most development to the country in recent history. Mabrook noted that even President Obama was not able to accomplish much in his first term for which he received a lot of backlash. However, Obama went on to accomplish great things for the country in his second term after being re-elected, said Spokesperson Mabrook.

Replying to a question whether President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih would compete for a second term in office, Spokesperson Mabrook said that it depends on how things unfold in the coming year. He praised President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih highlighting that the President prioritizes discussions with the connoisseur of the field.
