MP Mahloof resigns as PPM spokesperson

MP Ahmed Mahloof has resigned as the spokesperson of the ruling Progressive Party of Maldives (PPM) yesterday.

The MP for Galolhu South revealed on social media Twitter that he had resigned at the request of the party and later told online news outlet CNM that PPM Deputy Leader Abdul Raheem Abdulla had told him to resign.

After resigning previously, Mahloof returned to the post in July 2013 reportedly at the behest of party members.

Asked if he would remain with the party, Mahloof told CNM that he was a PPM member “at the moment”.
