Running Mate for President H.E Abdulla Yameen in the Presidential Election to be held tomorrow, Dr. Shaheem requested the nation to cast their vote for President Yameen. He stressed the vote is very important in order to maintain peace and prosperity of the nation and to retain our sovereignty. If the opposition wins, the country would spiral a huge downfall resulting in unrecoverable disruption and chaos.
Dr. Shaheem also condemned the accusations made by opposition, tying President H.E Abdulla Yaamin seeking black magic to win the election. He said that President Yameen is a religious person with complete faith and only seeks the guidance of Allah Almighty. Furthermore, Dr. Shaheem denied any accusations against himself made by Sheikh Hussain Ilyas of Adhaalath party. He said that no real conversation has taken between the two of them in the past four years and they just had brief encounters. He also stressed that it is quite disheartening and sad that a religious scholar such as Sheikh Ilyas should put personal political gain over religion.
Sheikh Mohamed Didi who was also at the conference revealed his concern as he cannot comprehend as to why Adhaalath Party should ally with the coalition and go against the government. He also added that Adhaalath Party has completely lost its aim and focus.
Dr. Shaheem concluded the conference on the note that Progressive Party of Maldives has majority of support from religious scholars and experts of the country and we should uphold the values of Islam in the country and no space should be given to bring about a secular reign as targeted by the opposition. This can only be achieved by the country casting their vote in favor of candidate no. 01, H.E President Abdulla Yameen, tomorrow.

Progressive Party of Maldives says Maldivians will not be intimidated by the same tactics used Maldivian Democratic Party in 2008.
Progressive Party of Maldives has said that Maldivians will not be intimidated by the same tactics Maldivian Democratic Party had used in 2008.
The statement was made the Member of Parliament of the Villimale’ constituency, Mr. Nihan Hussain Manik in a press conference held today in Sakeena Manzil. He said that creating confusion, fear and anger towards opposition candidates are a common trait of Maldivian Democratic Party. They do not have any concerns over the consequences this will bring to the people and infrastructure, as long as they have their way.
MDP has been creating fear amongst the general public by creating false rumors, this time against Maldives Police Service. While speaking at a press conference held in Sri Lanka, former President of Maldives and Leader of MDP, Mohamed Nasheed claimed that Maldives Police Service has distributed their uniforms to members of gangs to create chaos and violence with the President Election day looming just a day away. Personnel of the Police Force along with their families are victims of hatred and are under constant scrutiny as consequences of false rumors created against them.
MDP has also been trying to create mistrust towards the Elections Commission. In the latest scandal created by MDP, apparently the vote cast by voters on the ballot paper automatically goes in favor of candidate 01, H.E President Abdulla Yameen Abdul Gayoom of Maldives after a few minutes. Nihan stated that people are more aware and educated today, to understand these are baseless accusations. He further stated that not even 32% of Maldives, is in favor of MDP.
Both Maldives Police Service and Elections Commission have also condemned the allegations made by MDP against them.
Also speaking at the conference, Minister of Environment and Energy, Honorable Thoriq Ibrahim said that, MDP is finally revealing its true colors, since they have realized that possibility of them losing the elections are very high. The next trick up their sleeve as usual is to create unrest and fear, by spreading false rumors.
Time and again opposition party MDP has been known to throw false accusations against institutions who protect the nation such as Maldives Police Services and Maldives National Force. Maldives Progressive Party called for the nation not to let the bitter history repeat itself, and we should now move towards a peaceful, progressive future.
They stressed on the importance of double checking where people have to cast their votes. Voting for the Presidential election will commence at 0800hrs on September 23rd.
