There is no legal reason why the upcoming parliamentary elections should be postponed, and postponement will result in the State having to bear an extra MVR 20 million, says Elections Commission (EC).
Speaking during a press conference this Sunday, President of EC, Ahmed Shareef said the commission had received information of plans to make last-minute attempts at postponing the upcoming elections.
He said the commission was already prepared to face any such attempts.
Shareef stressed that all parliamentary candidates and political parties were awarded the legally required time and opportunity to campaign for the elections. He said that the EC did not have to take responsibility for the failure of parties and candidates to effectively campaign during the given time.
