President’s call for election in July 2013, as the earliest date permitted by the Constitution, has been met with overwhelming support

Friday, 20 April 2012 00:00

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.

No: 2012/06


Emblem for the Republic of Maldives - Dr. WaheedThe adoption of the Maldives' first democratic constitution in 2008 marked the end of a four-year process through which the political and human rights landscape of the country was changed beyond all recognition. This process, known as the Reform Agenda was governed by as associated Roadmap which had, as its end point, free and fair multiparty elections in 2008 and 2009.

 

However, despite the Roadmap ending with those historic elections, it is clear that the Maldives' democratic and human rights transition still has a long way to go both in terms of strengthening existing institutions and in terms of completing the secondary legislative framework to implement the rights and principles foreseen in the new Constitution.
