Two candidates remain for MDP presidency: report

Two candidates will contest the position of president for the Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP) after a third potential nominee was ruled ineligible for the post, Haveeru has reported.

According to the paper, Ali Shakeer of Mafannu Navacone was rejected from the race after reportedly failing to correctly submit certain required documents.

The decision, which has been taken by the party’s National Elections Committee, leaves Ibrahim Hussein Zaki, the Special Envoy to President Mohamed Nasheed, and Dr Ibrahim Didi in the running.

Four candidates are also running for the party’s deputy president post including Mohamed Aslam, Aslam Shakir, Alhan Fahmy and Hussein Adam of Galolhu Kakaage, Haveeru added.

Elections for the posts are set for 30 April 2011.
