Former Maldivian President Mohamed Nasheed has said that the decisions by Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP) subsequent to the report of the Commission of National Inquiry (CNI) have been intimated to the prominent officials of the respective governments of Sri Lanka and India.
Speaking to opposition Raajje TV reporters upon his
return to Male after the conclusion of his private visit to India and Sri
Lanka, Nasheed revealed that in addition to the decision of MDP, some other
information of relevance have also been shared with the top officials of the
Sri Lanka and Indian governments.
To that end he added that the “views of certain individuals in relation to some matters” have been brought to the attention of the Maldives’ closest neighbors during the visit. In addition, Nasheed detailed that he had highlighted the importance of taking necessary action against the few officers of the Police and military involved in the overthrow of his government on February 7.
The National Steering Committee of MDP had made three propositions in relation to the report of the CNI set up to probe the much debated downfall of Nasheed’s government which is due on August 30. One proposition of the opposition party is to reinstate their government if the CNI report concludes that the MDP government was in fact toppled through a coup d etat. If the CNI decides that unlawful activities had contributed to the downfall of the MDP government, the second proposition suggests to hold early presidential elections and bring the perpetrators to justice, while the third and final option is to contest in the scheduled presidential elections in 2013 if the CNI report finds that the transfer of power on February 7 had been legitimate.
