Mayor of Male’ City Council, Dr. Mohamed Muizzu has called to abolish the Housing Development Corporation (HDC) as the rift between City Council and HDC continues.
Mayor Muizzu alleged that HDC is an obstacle for the true rights of Male’ people and abolishing HDC is what is best for the people of Male’. Mayor Muizzu also believes that Hulhumale belongs under the jurisdiction of Male’ City Council, a council elected by the people of the Greater Male’ Area.
The recent conflict between HDC and Male’ City Council has heated up after Male’ City Council voted to eliminate HDC’s ownership of Hulhumale land. However, Local Government Authority (LGA) has decided to delay the process of expediting the ownership of Hulhumale land to Male’ City Council citing a proper inquiry needs to be done before a decision is made final. Moreover, HDC has filed a case at the Civil Court against the Male’ City Council’s decision which is currently pending trial.
