Thasmeen says will support ‘majority’ in parliament on endorsement issue

Opposition Dhivehi Rayyithunge Party (DRP) leader Ahmed Thasmeen Ali has said he will support the majority view of parliament in the matter of the controversial cabinet reendorsement.

Miadhu reported Thasmeen as saying he was confident the majority would require ministers to be endorsed individually, and claimed that the government only wanted a “ceremonial” wholesale vote because it wished to defend certain ministers.

President Nasheed said over the weekend that ministers would not be dismissed if disapproved by parliament.

The disagreement over the procedure has deadlocked parliament for the last two weeks.
