The opposition revealed on Tuesday that the Supreme Court has ordered them to amend the motion they filed to impeach President Abdulla Yameen.

Former presidents Maumoon Abdul Gayoom and Mohamed Nasheed along with Jumhoory Party leader Qasim Ibrahim and Adhaalath Party’s deputy leader Ali Zahir had filed the impeach motion on Sunday.

In a tweet, Nasheed stated they are currently working on amending the motion. However, there has been no word from any lawyers working on the case while no additional information has been provided regarding the required amendments.

According to the regulations of the Supreme Court, a panel of judges will decide to accept cases after making sure all the required legal documents are submitted.

The opposition filed the motion seeking a verdict which rules that Yameen had violated Subject 100 of the Maldivian Constitution. The motion accused Yameen of being involved in multiple corruptions and urged the Supreme Court to impeach him and hand over the presidency to Vice President Abdulla Jihad.
