President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih on Wednesday stated that that he is confident he can win presidential elections with the current coalition if chosen as MDP’s presidential candidate. He made the statement in a press conference held today.
President Solih stated that no party alone can win 50% votes in the elections. However, with the existing coalition, he is confident that he can win the elections for MDP.
“I am confident I can win the 2023 elections for MDP with the coalition. MDP alone cannot win the elections. MDP congress has to decide the presidential candidate. I can give assurance that I am confident I can win the elections. If MDP wants to win elections in 2023, I am the choice”, President Solih said.
This is the first time President Solih has declared that he will run for a second term following his colleague and Parliament Speaker Mohamed Nasheed declared that he will compete in the MDP primaries.
