The President’s call for election in July 2013, as the earliest date permitted by the Constitution, has been met with overwhelming public support by the leaders of the major political parties, including the DRP, PPM and JP.The CMAG’s primary mandate is to defend the Constitutions of the Commonwealth member states, and the Maldivian Constitution is very clear on when Presidential elections can be held. As such, the government is confident that once the CMAG is fully aware of this, they will come out in support of July 2013 elections.
The MDP’s advocacy for elections earlier than July 2013 merely serves to highlight the persistent constitutional violations of the previous administration.
Invest Maldives, the government agency entrusted with promoting, licensing and registering foreign investments in the country, is the first port of call for all foreigners keen to invest in the Maldives.
