Deputy leader of ruling Progressive Party of Maldives (PPM) Abdul Raheem Abdulla proclaimed that the ruling coalition has achieved 54 seats of parliament, thus regaining its majority.

Abdul Raheem Abdulla, who is also the lawmaker of Fonadhoo constituency, made the declaration in a tweet. Mihaaru was not able to obtain additional details as he did not respond to calls.

His announcement comes in the wake of the motion of no confidence recently put to vote against Parliament Speaker Abdulla Maseeh last March, which was failed with only 48 votes from the ruling coalition of PPM and Maldives Development Alliance (MDA). While the ruling PPM/MDA coalition had previously been able to achieve 54 votes in bigger votes, the number had reduced in the no confidence vote and the ruling coalition lost the super majority of Parliament.

The lawmaker of Inguraidhoo constituency, Mohamed Falah, had previously claimed that some lawmakers of Jumhoory Party will soon join PPM and that a rally would be held regarding the shift.
