Elections Commission (EC) has made the decision to dismiss the complaint lodged against People’s National Congress (PNC) over the use of Progressive Party of Maldives (PPM)’s assets.
The complaint about the use of PPM’s assets by PNC was filed by a member of the general public last Sunday. It came mere hours before PNC held its inaugural congress on Sunday night.
EC, on Monday, announced it had set up a three-member committee – made up of two appointees from EC’s legal department and one appointee from EC’s law firm to look into the complaint.
Speaking during a press conference by the committee this Wednesday afternoon, chair of the committee, Riffath Abdulla announced the committee has decided the commission cannot look into the complaint.
“Based on our investigation of how this took place, and everything surrounding this case, this committee has decided the case cannot be looked into as requested by the complainant,” said Riffath.
Riffath announced that EC, based on the findings of the committee, has decided against holding the permit issued to PNC.
