President Dr Mohamed Waheed met former President Maumoon Abdul Gayoom on Monday evening, reports local media.
No details of the hour long meeting were disclosed to media but a senior Progressive Party of Maldives (PPM) official told newspaper Haveeru that the pair discussed the possibility of President Waheed working with PPM in the upcoming presidential election.
“Just one such meeting cannot lead to an understanding. However we expect a favorable outcome by strengthening relations,” the official was quoted as saying.
PPM MP Ahmed Nihan told Minivan News this week that the party was engaged in talks over the possibility of forming a power sharing agreement with other parties in the government of President Waheed.
