We will only cooperate in continuing Majlis sessions if relevant parties hold discussions- MDP
Opposition Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP) has stated that the Parliamentary Group of the party will only cooperate in continuing the sessions of the Peoples’ Majlis if President Dr. Mohamed Waheed Hassan Manik and the leaders of the political parties agree to hold discussions.
MDP Parliamentary Group made this remark in a statement of the group released yesterday.
In the statement, the MDP Parliamentary group called all the relevant parties to hold discussions to solve the issue of the suspension of the Majlis sessions indefinitely.
Speaker of the Peoples’ Majlis announced on Tuesday that the Majlis sessions were indefinitely suspended as MPs representing the opposition MDP have been continuously obstructing the sessions and meetings of the Majlis committees claiming that they will not cooperate in the Majlis as long as the government insists to charge the people for Aasandha National Health Insurance Scheme.
Meanwhile, Speaker Abdullah Shahid and the MDP Parliamentary Group Leader Ibrahim Mohamed Solih and Minority Leader Abdullah Yameen of PPM yesterday held discussions.
