As a member of PPM(one of the coalition party of the President Waheed,Current President of Maldives Government) i would say , its true what the former President Mohamed Nasheed is saying.President Waheed may have good skills in managing UN based devolopmenet Projects, but he doesnt know how to run a country.
President Waheed havnt held an early election unlike other world countries.
President Waheed is under pressure from coalition parties.
President Waheed send GMR from the Maldives due to coalition parties.
President Waheed could not control the BUDGET of this country and IMF has been warning .
President Waheed is not stopping to appoint political positions with regard to IMF.
President Waheed could not bring internal stability( Foreign and locals are being killed in gang violence)
For the first time in Maldives , a Parliament member has died of PPM , and the investigation is clueless!
President Waheed is misusing governments money.
What else do u need to overthrow a governement??ARnt these the factors for an uprising against President Waheed ??
