Speaker of the parliament Mr.Qasim Ibrahim has stated that there are elements within the Maldivian Democratic Party who are planning to take a vote of no confidence against President Ibrahim Mohammed Solih and impeach him.
Speaking at a gathering held the Jumhoory Party’s (JP) headquarters last night, Mr.Qasim said that it is not even two months since President Solih assumed office but his own party is trying to overthrow him.
He said that they are carefully watching what MDP is planning to bring someone back to power. Mr.Qasim said that they are not little children not to understand what MDP is planning.
Furthermore, Mr.Qasim stated that as long as President Solih wants to remain as the president of Maldives, he will back him.
Mr.Qasim has been vocally criticising MDP and former President Nasheed in the past few weeks.
