In a recent campaign visit to R. Maakurathu, President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih emphasized that the upcoming election does not offer the choice to revert to the injustices of the previous administration by supporting the opposition candidate, Dr. Mohamed Muizzu.
President Solih underlined the importance of careful consideration before casting one’s vote, emphasizing that a vote is a sacred trust granted to every citizen. He highlighted the existence of two distinct ideologies in the Maldives, represented by the Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP) and the Progressive Party of Maldives (PPM). The President urged citizens to ponder the potential consequences if they were to vote for the People’s National Congress (PNC) candidate, Dr. Mohamed Muizzu.
Drawing attention to the injustices faced during the previous term, President Solih pointed out that these challenges were a direct result of voting for the PPM. He cautioned that electing Muizzu as President would risk a return to those troubled times. He stated, “They are the ones that ruled from 2013 to 2018. We must remember and think about the terrible times that Maldives saw. If you vote for Muizzu, the PNC candidate, vote for him and if he wins, we are again going back to that injustice.”
President Solih stressed that this election offers no alternative but to vote for MDP. He firmly believed that voting for any other candidate would be a “wasteful vote.” In his view, choosing MDP is the only viable option to safeguard the country from potential ruin.
Furthermore, President Solih unveiled a series of projects planned for Maakurathu during his second term, which includes:
- Land reclamation and the construction of housing units.
- Development and paving of roads to improve infrastructure.
- Establishment of a sports complex for recreational activities.
- Construction of a multi-purpose hall within the school to enhance educational facilities.
- Commencement of laboratory services at the health center to improve healthcare accessibility.
These projects reflect President Solih’s commitment to improving the lives of the people of Maakurathu and the Maldives as a whole.
