Presidential candidates reach agreement to hold elections on Saturday, says President Waheed

6 November2013, Male’; Speaking at a press conference held today after his meeting with the presidential candidates, President Dr Mohamed Waheed has said that all three candidates have agreed to endorse the voter registry so that presidential election could be held on Saturday as scheduled.

The President assured that the government would give all necessary assistance and cooperation to hold the election on Saturday.

The President said, during the meeting with the candidates, discussions were also held on the arrangements required if a runoff election is to be held. He said all candidates agreed that the second round of the election could be held on either the 10th or 11th of November.

President noted that this was a very crucial period in the history of Maldives and that the country would face many challenges if a new president was not elected by the end of the current presidential term on November 11. He, therefore, stressed the need to find a political solution to the issue.

At today’s press conference, the President took questions from the local media on those issues.
