The Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP), the main opposition in the Maldives, is reportedly gearing up to propose a motion for the impeachment of President Mohamed Muizzu, who is perceived as being pro-China, according to media reports on Monday. In response, the government coalition consisting of the Progressive Party of Maldives (PPM) and People’s National Congress (PNC) has firmly declared their stance against any attempts to oust President Muizzu through parliamentary proceedings.
Ahmed Saleem, the leader of the PPM Parliamentary Group (PG) representing the Eydhafushi constituency, stated in a press conference on Monday that the coalition is determined to thwart any endeavors by the MDP to remove President Muizzu from office. He emphasized their unwavering commitment, stating, “We will not allow them any opportunities to go ahead with this. They will have to kill us all first before they can even think of removing the President from office,” as reported by The Edition.mv. Stay tuned for further updates on this developing situation.
