Nasheed discusses Maldives’ political situation with diplomats

Maldives, February 26, 2013: Former Maldives President Mohamed Nasheed on Tuesday discussed political situation in the country with several heads of diplomatic missions accredited to Maldives.

Nasheed’s spokesman Hamid Abdul Ghafoor said that the discussions focused on the way forward to hold free, fair and inclusive Presidential elections in the Maldives.

He said that Nasheed had talks with U.S. Ambassador Michele Sison, German Ambassador Dr Jrgen Morhad, Ambassador of France Christine Robichon, British High Commissioner John Rankin and Acting Canadian High Commissioner Robert McDougall.

The spokesperson added that all the heads of missions emphasized the importance of inclusive elections, which will not disenfranchise a large part of the population.

Nasheed also discussed the necessity of a transitional arrangement to oversee the elections scheduled to be held in September of this year.

Earlier this month Nasheed was holed up for 11 days inside the Indian High Commission in the Maldives following a court order being issued to arrest him.
