Ruling Progressive Party of Maldives (PPM) on Saturday declared that the absence of a certain figure among its ranks will not have any negative impacts on public support for PPM ahead of the Local Council Elections.

Speaking at PPM’s press conference regarding the local elections, the party’s Deputy Secretary General Iqbal Adam made the comment in response to an inquiry whether PPM will lose votes over the party’s dismissal of its leader, Former President Maumoon Abdul Gayoom, last Monday and the close-down of his office on Friday.

“I don’t want to speak names, but the absence of a certain figure takes nothing away from this party,” he said, declaring PPM still boasts hope and a future.
