Maldives Parliament was witness to an unusual deposition by Maldives Ist woman Defence Minister Mariya Ahmed Didi, where she apologized for her remarks made during an interview with Strategic News International in late January. Defence minister was summoned for questioning during Monday’s sitting of parliament.

The courageous minister said in parliament sitting – “Some people are disturbed by my words in five seconds out of the 22 minutes causing confusion. The remarks were misreported and taken out of context, I humbly apologies for that.

It is also remarkable that after the loss of Presidential election 2018 opposition (PPM) has not able to digest its defeat and keep raking up issues to destabilize the Ibu’s Govt.

Opposition Party (PPM) led by the Jailed Former President Yameen, who himself faces corruption charges , moved a no-confidence motion against Defence in February 2019 after her interview with Indian news outlet.

Interesting to watch, how social Media especially (Twitter) will react after her tendered apologies –


Apologizing does not always mean you’re wrong and the other person is right. It just means you value your relationship more than your ego.” ― Mark Matthews
