Peace talks cannot continue without AP and PPM- Civic Society Coalition
Civic Society Coalition has stated that the all party peace talks cannot continue without the participation of Adhaalath Party and Progressive Party of Maldives (PPM).
Civic Society Coalition’s Vice President Abdullah Mohamed told VTV said that the request of former President Nasheed to disallow the participation of Adhaalath Party President Sheikh Imran Abdullah and Interim President of PPM Umar Naseer is questionable. He said that he does not believe that the peacetalks should continue without their participation.
Abdullah Mohamed said that this request of Nasheed is a request to end the talks when the Adhaalath Party and the PPM are from the most powerful parties in the Maldives. He said that although this was revealed to the media only recently Nasheed has been requesting this since long.
Most of the political parties participating in the peace talks accuse the opposition Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP) of only trying to achieve their own political goals through the talks rather than working for the welfare of the country.
