The council of ruling Progressive Party of Maldives (PPM) on Sunday held an urgent meeting to discuss the expulsion of Former President Maumoon Abdul Gayoom as the leader of the party.
Mihaaru understands that the ongoing meeting is chaired by the party’s advisor, President Abdulla Yameen Abdul Gayoom, who was given control of the party by the judiciary following the political fall-out between the two Gayoom half-brothers. Since then, the party has been split into two factions.
PPM council is holding the emergency meeting amidst the high tension caused by Former President Maumoon signing a pact with opposition political leaders to work against President Yameen and pass the motion of no confidence against parliamentary speaker Abdulla Maseeh scheduled for Monday.
