“The Parliamentary Elections is a clear victory to the people of Maldives who have shown tremendous determination amid efforts by some to cause internal disharmony by inviting international pressure” said Foreign Minister Dunya Maumoon following the 18th Parliamentary Elections held in the Maldives yesterday.
Minister Dunya further said that “in this Elections, Maldivians have said yes to President Yameen’s ableleadership; yes to former President Gayoom’s leadership of PPM; yes to the Government’s foreign policy that is aimed at building national resilience of the Maldives; and yes to the Government’s firm stand of helping Maldivians to shape their own destiny. The Elections also shows that Maldivians have said a resounding “NO” to the efforts of some to invite foreign interference in domestic politics through a number of statements issued telling Maldivians how to organise our own affairs".        
“I wish to congratulate the people of Maldives for their belief in the value of democracy. The world should not underestimate the perseverance of Maldivians. I also wish to congratulate the Elections Commission for holdingthe elections in an efficient, free, fair, and transparent manner”.
The independent Elections Commission is expected to announce the preliminary results of the elections in the coming hours.
ENDS.
