Former HRCM Commissioner joins MDP

Former President of the Human Rights Commission of the Maldives (HRCM), Ahmed Saleem has joined the ruling Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP), acknowledging the party’s support for his reelection to the Human Rights Commission of the Maldives (HRCM).

“When I ran for the membership of HRCM, they issued a three-line whip to vote for me. They backed me when I ran for the membership of MBC’s board as well,” said Saleem, who was voted out of the position by the opposition majority parliament.

“I served the government for 42 years yet they rendered me unneeded. But MDP supported me even then.”

Saleem said he had “always held a firm belief in human rights and democracy and I strongly support MDP’s policy on democracy and human rights.”

“I believe that without those political parties will not exist either. I want to make use of what I’ve learned from the human rights field,” he said.

  1. MDP must have done a big favour for you boy !!! I don't think you believe in any democracy or human rights. Its all about the greed to have a big job with a big pay check.
