Maldivian opposition pressures President for apology to Modi and Indians

maldives-

MALI: The opposition urges Maldivian President Mohamed Muizzu to formally apologize to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the people of India. Maldivian Jamhuri Party (JP) leader Kasim Ibrahim demands the apology, emphasizing the need to maintain good relations with neighboring countries.

Simultaneously, the opposition led by the Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP), is initiating an impeachment motion against President Mohamed Muizzu perceived as being pro-China and anti-India. The MDP, with support from allies The Democrats, has begun collecting signatures from MPs. With a combined total of 55 seats in the 87-member parliament, they hold the majority, as 34 MPs have already expressed support for the impeachment motion.

Allegations suggest that President Muizzu's anti-India stance has fueled the motion causing tension between the ruling Progressive Party of Maldives (PPM), People's National Congress (PNC) and members of the opposition MDP. A clash resulted in injuries including a broken head for one MP.
