Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP) has appointed former President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih as its interim president. The decision was made during a crucial meeting of the MDP held last night at the party’s national assembly in AA. Ukulhas. Notably, 47 out of the 48 members present at the meeting voted in favor of Solih’s appointment.
This strategic decision follows the recent defeat in the presidential election, prompting the MDP to regroup and reorganize its leadership structure. The appointment of former President Solih is seen as a deliberate step to bring experience and stability to the party during this critical period.
The MDP has also communicated its plans to conduct elections for a permanent president within the next month. This commitment to an internal democratic process underlines the party’s dedication to transparency and inclusive decision-making.
Despite a period of relative quietude in the aftermath of the election setback, the National Assembly meeting serves as a clear signal that the opposition party is gearing up to resume its political activities. The MDP remains steadfast in its mission to hold the current government accountable and contribute to shaping the political landscape in the Maldives.
