Malé, Maldives – The country has not improved nearly as much as expected during this government, the Maldives Reform Movement (MRM) President, Faris Maumoon said yesterday.

Speaking at a program at the Club House yesterday, Faris said that there has been no satisfactory progress in the areas of greatest concern to the people.

He pointed out the loss of people’s rights, political influence, widespread corruption and the corruption of the criminal justice system among others.

Faris said the MRM has not received an adequate response from the government to their requests regarding these issues.

“I am very sorry to say that things in the country have not improved as closely as we had hoped,” he said.

The remarks against government by Faris comes while MDP presidential candidate, President Ibrahim Mohammed Solih, has invited the MRM to form a coalition in the upcoming presidential election.

However, the MRM has not yet decided on the matter. The MRM has recently held talks with the JP regarding the presidential election.

While MRM has not yet decided on the presidential election, Faris has previously said that the MRM is likely to nominate a candidate for the presidential election.
