Home Minister and leader of Adhalath Party Mr.Imran Abdullah has claimed that the candidates of the Adhalath Party running in the parliamentary election are government candidates.
He made this statement while speaking at the ceremony held to launch the campaign of Hussein Saqeef Ihsan who is running for Hdh.Vaikaradhoo constituency.
Despite the Home Minister’s claim that the AP candidates are government candidates, the ruling party MDP is contesting in all the constituencies against Adhalath Party.
Self-proclaimed leader of MDP, ex-president Mr.Mohammed Nasheed and Home Minister Mr.Imran Abdullah met over a week ago to find a way to work together. After the meeting, Mr.Nasheed said that MDP’s candidate can withdraw their names if they wished to do so. However none of the candidates contesting against AP members withdrew their names.
