The MDP presidential candidate, President Ibrahim Mohammed Solih, is traveling in a high end speedboat rented at party expense, the campaign team said yesterday.
According to the campaign team, the President traveled in a rented vessel at party expense when he contested the presidential primary. The team said the presidential campaign will follow the same pattern.
The issue of misuse of state resources and campaigning during elections is always raised. This is a criticism that comes with every party in power.
The President and the MDP have been criticized for campaigning on state property during the parliamentary elections, the subsequent parliamentary by-elections and the MDP’s internal elections.
Even when the PPM was in government, the issue of campaigning at state expense was raised by the parties in the ruling coalition, including the MDP.
