Maldives opposition warns against bid to sway Sept election

The opposition presidential candidate in the Maldives said he did not expect September’s election to be free and fair but trusted voters to decide on his challenge to President Abdulla Yameen, who imposed a state of emergency this year. Yameen is seeking a second five-year term in the tropical tourist paradise riven by political instability since a police mutiny forced its first democratically-elected leader, Mohamed Nasheed, to quit in 2012. Veteran lawmaker “Ibu” Mohamed Solih, who is challenging Yameen in a coalition led by the main opposition Maldivian Democratic Party, spoke to 400 citizens resident in Sri Lanka. Nasheed who also attended the meeting said they are aware that President Yameen is going to rig the elections.
