Male’, Maldives – Former President of Maldives and current Speaker of the Parliament, Mohamed Nasheed stated today that his only intention to save the Maldives.

Speaker Nasheed, who is also the President of ruling MDP party, tweeted that his only intention is to save Maldives and from what he believes, MDP needs a new coalition. That is to stop supporting IndiaOut but to support the hatred bill instead and a coalition that does not make music haram and does not make fun of the Prophet Muhammed.

I believe that this is what majority of the people in both MDP and PPM supports.

Speaker Mohamed Nasheed.

Speaker Nasheed gave Afghanistan as an example and stated that most Maldivians would not wish for the country to the state that Afghanistan is currently in.

Former President and Current Speaker of the Parliament Mohamed Nasheed, recently stated that he can no longer maintain a political relationship with President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih and that he was willing to get assistance from former President Yameen and the opposition Progressive Party of Maldives (PPM).

Speaker Nasheed sent a message to a WhatsApp group with several MDP members yesterday, saying that he does not have a problem with President Solih and that they will not have one. However, he added that there are conflicts in their mindsets which is why he cannot have a political relationship with President Solih. Nasheed added that his personal relationship with the President will remain the same. 

Furthermore, Nasheed said that there is nothing to do even if MDP members have a problem with this and that he will go to PPM for help if they support a medium religious policy.
