Opposition lawmakers are seeking to submit a motion of no confidence against the parliament’s deputy speaker Moosa Manik.
Mihaaru understands that the motion of no confidence against the lawmaker of Hulhuhenveiru constituency is spearheaded by parliamentarians of the main opposition Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP). According to sources, MDP lawmakers have been in talks with members of ruling Progressive Party of Maldives (PPM)’s that support its leader and Former President Maumoon Abdul Gayoom’s faction of the divided ruling party.
