Maldives president fires 2nd police chief in 3 days
Feb 04, 2018, 01:13
Political opponents of the Maldives government clashed with police on the streets of the capital early Friday after the Supreme Court ordered the release of imprisoned politicians, including an ex-president living in exile in Britain. "We won't let that happen", he said.
Gayoom's spokesperson Ibrahim Muaz Ali on Friday tweeted that the "talk was all false and that the picture of a ticket being spread in the social media, purportedly belong to PresidentYameen, was falsified".
The Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP) said Yameen was yet to release any in line with Thursday's shock decision of the apex court to quash the dissidents' convictions.
Mr Yameen said, a dialogue has been initiated and they are working on fully deciphering the Supreme Court ruling.
The ruling could lead to him becoming eligible to run in the presidential election expected to take place between August and November.
"In an interaction with TOI in February a year ago, Nasheen had said that India had a moral obligation to facilitate" inclusive, free and fair elections in the Maldives" in 2018. The government's pressure on the court during trials of political prisoners violated the Maldives' Constitution and global law, they said in a statement. This has given the opposition a clear majority in Parliament and that's the reason the opposition believes Yameen can no longer remain in power.
"Instead of ruling on the matter, the Supreme Court reinstated parliamentarians that were removed from their seats for mounting an impeachment motion against the Speaker of Majlis, Abdulla Maseeh, a key ally of the president".
Shortly after the ruling the police announced on Twitter that it would enforce it.
