The Electoral Commission has fined nine parties for failing to submit reports in line with 2005 political party regulations, reports Miadhu.

The People’s Party (PP) , Maldivian Social Democratic Party (MSDP), Dhivehi Rayyithunge Party (DRP), Adhalat Party (AP), National Alliance (NA), Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP) and Jumhooree Party (JP) were issued fines of Rf20,000.

The  Islamic Democratic Party (IDP) and Maldivian National Congress (MNC) were fined Rf30,000.

The EC also revealed that of the fines it has previously issued, only the People’s Alliance paid on time.


One thought on “EC fines nine parties”

  1. So none of the Political Parties have submitted reports to the Election's commission? And only PA paid their fines? This is quite shameful.

    On a technical note: National Alliance is not supposed to be translated into English. Its supposed to stay as "Gaumee Itthihaad" or "GI". Unless there exists another party by that name which I'm unfamiliar with. If it was translated, the party's official translation is "National Unity." Not alliance.
