Former President Dr Mohamed Waheed’s son, Jeffrey Salim Waheed, signed for the Progressive Party of Maldives (PPM) yesterday.
Waheed presented his membership form to PPM leader, former President Maumoon Abdul Gayoom, during a ceremony at the party’s office.
He later tweeted that it was “an honour to join the only political party in the Maldives that stands for nation, unity and progress.”
The former president’s son is the Maldives’ Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN.
Former President Waheed meanwhile dissolved his Gaumee Ihthihaad Party in December and joined the PPM.
