mixed messages

on the gathering held on friday by MDP its parlimentary group leader and the crowd gathered said to a safer maldives we need to get maumoon arrested. before 24 hours to we hear that the cabinet decides to renew the lease of alif dhaal ariyadhooo given to maumoons brother in law Ilyas ibrahim. he had been accused of fraud before when he was in the power both by the former regime and the present government. So what is the intension of the government.Is it that the current government
uses maumoon to gether support to them as a political tool?. are they afraid to prove the corruption of the former regime cause they themselves have corruption going in the government. hmm

Protest or Public Disorder?

the protest that has been going in the street of Male for 5 consecutive nights is viewed in differently. supporters of the government view it as a plot organized by the opposition to overthrow the government by means of protest. taking a model of recent protest that led to government change in most of the middle east nations. The ruling party vows to defend the government by all means. the opposition and its supporters say it is protest by the youth to highlight the impact the country is facing due to the dollar reference change made by the government to stabilize the economy. the crime prevention committee and police view it as public disorder and accused that the protest are a proxy used by the underground gangs to get back at the police for the recent crackdown on them. however it is viewed the protests and the chain of events that occur due to the protest would have its affect's on the country

calls to arrest former government officials poltical drama?

almost in all of the gatherings of the ruling MDP some of it parliament members and most of the time its parliamentary leader calls on the government to arrest former government officials over corruption and charges on to overthrow the government. till today the calls are not acted on. this raises the question every time MDP top officials call on the government to arrest former government officials are they playing a game to render support to them. a presidential commission have been in place and a lot of cases are said to be investigated by them till to date no case have been finished or sent to the courts. there is no news of any action taken from the commission. wonder of they are doing their job or is this also another game by the government. are they afraid if they do start taking action then their former vice president may also have to be investigated . hmm

Protest to bring down the price?

two nights the capital male' have seen protests against the rising of prices due to the recent dollar change. the first night saw violent clashes between the police and protesters. the second night the ruling party had their supporters on the streets with some joining the protest the other half against the protest. the question is will the prices go down due to the protest. is the government ready to hear their call. since its an opposition protest the government probably will not listen. the other question is did the price go up entirely because of the dollar crisis or some people using the dollar crisis to their advantage?. why is local foods prices on the rise?. why did the price of stock rise that were already in the shops that was purchased before the dollar change?.why why why .

whats the meaning of the results?

MDP concluded its internal elections yesterday and the result of its most contested post have been released and both President and his vice in the party went to two candidates that were not in active government jobs. The turnout of the elections have been criticized by some and now speculation of what the eletions result show is the latest buzz. some say the result shows the frustration inside the party for its current leadership. and it shows that members in the party wants independent candidates to be in its most top jobs rather than people people who are already holding top government jobs. questions are raised to what would the presidents move will be to the candidates who lost one of which is his special envoy since he lost 3 elections inside the party.the days to come will see

which TV Station ?

wonder which TV Station in maldives now gives the truth. some say MNBC ONE. all who are in favour of the government likes it. the opposition says it gives every news one sided.Some say DhiTV gives it fair. People who favour DhiTV is the opposition. those who are against say that every news on it starts wordings thats against the government. there are people who favour VTV, but some say since its part of Villa group whose chairman is an opposition party leader all its news are ccontrolled by his policies. the newly formed Raaje TV according to some say is supported by the government. i guess the answer to which TV station talks the truth is it depends on which side of the political circle you are.

MDP elections

tomorrow MDP is going to hold its internal elections. we have seen heated comments between canditates running for its presodent and vice president. one camp accusing the other on all sort of things. its secretery general lost his job for campaigning for a candidate. a debate between candidates was dropped after accusation of corruption. there were internet anti campaigns against candidates. some now say that after the election result there may be a crack in the party like what is now happening in DRP. some disagree with this saying MDP is much stronger and a drift as DRP because MDP is not a party based on one person but rather on an ideology. lets wait and see what happens

Dollar , Dollar

from all corners of the country people are talking about the dollar crisis. you go to the local market ask for the price of something and get a high price and complain you will get the answer its due to Dollar crisis. even if you ask for the price of local foods you get the same. go to the fish market and the fisherman would say its because of the dollar crisis. the construction company complains that they are worst affected of the dollar crisis bacause they are forced to give salary increment to foreign staff . nobody seems to be talking about the real hardship that students studying abroad. they are now forced to pay extra 20% when they take money in the foreign country they are studying.

Child Abuse Cases Everyday.

Everyday in the news we hear about a child abuse case being unfold. and its not Limited to locals .Expatriates are also involved. Some Say Child Abuse Cases were there before but its now people have the courage to report the issue. but still in some Families they tend to Hide the issue. sometimes when the child Report that some one in the family is doing bad things to them the child is being told not to talk about it. The other issue is when a case is reported the police can arrest the person with a court order after which the police gather up evidence against the person. before the case is fully investigated the court may decide to cancel the court order. this gives the chance for criminal to do more harm and go Missing.

Weaker oppossition a sure win for the Ruling Party

The current State of the opposition makes you wonder can they give a good fight in the elections in the 2013 elections. The main opposition to many "DRP" is split between the former ruler and his running mate in the 2008 elections. both hate each other."Adhaalath party" is Split between for and against the Government."Jumhooree Party" Seems to be with a Naked Coalition With the Faction in "DRP" that supports the former Ruler. while "Gaumee Party" is Officially in partnership with the other Faction in "DRP". Nobody Knows What "PA" is upto they seems to be supporting the former ruler but ppl question their motive.There is no partnership between the opposition as it was back in the 2008 Elections. If the the situation of the opposition stays that way the 2013 elections is going to be a clear Win for the current Government.

Whats the solution for the gang fights?

what could be the solution for the gang fights?. Is it to take all the gang members to jail. will it stop if they were given rehabilitation?. In the case of jail some would say it may solve the issue temporarily. Rehabilitation some would question can it be given in Maldives. Maybe if we look into why gangs are formed and try to eliminate the cause for gang formation it may be the best way. but everybody powerful to do anything about it seems to be caught up in political warfare. Maybe the before combating the gang violence we need to do a campaign to stop the political warfare
