Elections Commission of Maldives (EC) announced late Sunday that total 1,487 candidates will be running for the upcoming Local Council Elections scheduled for April 15.

In a notice, EC disclosed that 1,124 candidates are running on electoral tickets from political parties while 363 are independent candidates.

Furthermore, the commission has also decided not to hold the elections for four island councils and one atoll council as the number of candidates match the number of seats for these councils. EC stated that these candidates are thus automatically elected for the seats.
