Malé, Maldives – President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih’s Government has failed, MDA leader and MP for Meedhoo constituency Ahmed Siyam said.

Siyam criticized the Government on a tweet, saying the people want an affordable living, and this government has failed to provide that.

Siyam being one of the biggest names in Maldives Hotel industry is among the people who are critical of Government’s plan to increase tax next year. Solih’s Government has increased GST and TGST by 8% and 16% respectively starting from January 1st 2023.

“The people of Maldives want an affordable living. This Government has failed to meet the most necessary needs of the people of Maldives, the Government has failed, spectacularly.” His tweet read.

Siyam has also announced his interest in next year’s Presidential Election. He formed an alliance with former President Yameen in the last election. Shortly after they lost, Siyam and Yameen parted ways.
