Maldives

The primary opposition party, the Maldives Democratic Party (MDP), recently announced that it would file a motion to remove President Mohamed Muizzu, who is well-known for adopting a pro-China attitude. This action comes after arguments over the approval of four members of the cabinet of the president in Parliament between MPs supporting the government and those against.

Maldives PPM and PNC Opposition in Coalition

Any attempt to remove President Muizzu through Parliament is fiercely opposed by the government coalition, which is made up of the People’s National Congress (PNC) and the Progressive Party of the Maldives (PPM). The alliance promises to obstruct the impeachment procedure in spite of the MDP’s majority in Parliament.

Conflicts in Parliament and Cabinet Approval Matters

As arguments broke out about who should be approved for the Maldives president’s pro-China cabinet, tensions in Parliament grew. Despite the MDP issued a three-line red whip against them, only one of the four cabinet ministers got approval from the Parliament on Monday.

Decision made by the MDP Parliamentary Group unanimously

The MDP’s parliamentary group meeting on Monday resulted in a unanimous resolution to file an impeachment motion. There are questions, nevertheless, regarding the opposition’s capacity to obtain the 53 votes needed to remove the president.

The ruling coalition’s Thoriq is among the critics who call the MDP’s impeachment attempts pointless. He draws attention to the fact that certain MDP members cast votes in contravention to the party’s line during the cabinet approval votes, casting doubt on the opposition’s purported majority.

The Numbers Game: An Obstacle for MDP

Even with the members of the MDP and the Democrats combined, Thoriq contends that it is improbable that the necessary 53 votes required for impeachment will be obtained. He thinks that in a vote this important, lawmakers from both parties would refuse to work together, which would make the opposition’s plan much more difficult to implement.
