The Parliament passed a resolution, submitted by Abdul Mughnee, MP for North Thinadhoo, calling for a public inquiry into allegations against former President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih’s government.

The resolution aims to investigate claims raised during Solih’s tenure, focusing on potential threats to national security and sovereignty resulting from defence agreements with the Indian government. These include the stationing of Indian soldiers in the Maldives, loss of territorial waters, and instances of state-sponsored corruption.

Mughnee presented the resolution in Parliament following its unanimous endorsement at the Maldivian Democratic Party’s (MDP) national council meeting in Ukulhas, Alifu Alifu Atoll. This action responds to public demands for clarity on issues that reportedly threatened national security and sovereignty.

The resolution’s objectives extend beyond investigation to uphold peace and harmony in the Maldives. It addresses allegations made by the then-opposition, Progressive Party of Maldives-People’s National Congress (PPM-PNC), which significantly influenced the outcome of the recent presidential election and contributed to President Solih’s defeat.

This inquiry demonstrates the MDP’s commitment to transparency and addressing public concerns, marking a proactive stance in light of the recent governmental transition, according to the party.
