The Maldives’ electoral watchdog announced that the temporary results of the Local Council Elections 2017 will be released Monday afternoon.

Elections Commission member Ahmed Akram stated that temporary results have already been released at the respective polling stations. The commission will announce the temporary total results of each constituency or council at the elections main centre in capital Male on Monday.

“The Elections [Commission] is uploading temporary results to the website upon receiving them as well. Today, we’ll be announcing the total results,” said Akram.

The Elections General Act mandates the commission to release the temporary results within three days of holding the elections.

The results that have been released so far show that main opposition Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP) currently holds the majority of council seats. According to the statistics based on the results publicised by some media, observers and monitors, MDP has the super majority of the three main city councils with 12 out of 13 seats of Male City, two seats out of three from Fuvahmulah City and all the seats of Addu City.

MDP has also won the majority of island council seats in islands with large populations.
