Demand to the United Nations (UN) to ensure a free and fair elections in Maldives

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!


Maldives, an archipelago nation, known as travelers paradise for its stunning beaches and luxury resorts, is actually enveloped by dark clouds of dictatorship. Just a few month back, the incumbent President clamped a State of Emergency and prevented implementation of a Supreme Court order to release political opponents, jailed on concocted charges. With next Presidential elections scheduled to be held in September 2018, It is feared that President Yameen may also get his political opponents barred from joining the fray.

You can change this scenario by asking the United Nations to ensure Free and Fair elections and to appoint a UN observer for the election.

Ever since, President Yameen assumed presidency, there have been charges that 2013 elections were rigged by PPM and he amended the constitution to help him stay in power. He has slapped severe charges against his political opponents like Former President Nasheed and put them behind bars without a fair trial. Anyone, who has raised voice against his authoritarian rule, has been silenced, Such cases shrouded by mysteries, have never been investigated. As a result, over the years of President Yameen’s rule, Maldives has transformed from a democracy to a dictatorship.

In the near future too, if President Yameen has his way, this will not change. The next general election in September 2018 is crucial for him and there is no doubt that he will use unfair means to ensure his re-election. We, the people of Maldives cannot allow this tyranny to continue.

Sign this petition calling on the UN to appoint a team of observers for the September 2018 elections in order to ensure a free and fair election. By doing so, as a Maldivian citizen you will be full -filling your responsibility to save your country.
