Maldives presidential voting extended by 3 hours

first_imgMaldivian voters living in Sri Lanka line up to cast their votes at the Maldivian High Commission in Colombo on 23 September 2018. Voting began in a controversial presidential election in the Maldives Sunday, amid fears that the process has been rigged in China-friendly strongman Abdulla Yameen`s favour. — Photo: AFPThe Maldives extended voting in the presidential election, in which Abdulla Yameen is expected to cement his grip on power, amid criticism over the fairness of the poll in the islands, best known as a luxury holiday destination.The Indian Ocean nation’s Election Commission has extended voting by three hours to 1900 hours (1400 GMT) due to long queues, an official said.The Muslim-majority Indian Ocean nation has become a theater of rivalry between its traditional partner, India, and China, which has backed Yameen’s infrastructure drive, and prompted concern in the West about Beijing’s increasing influence.Yameen’s government has jailed many of his main rivals, including former president and his half-brother, Maumoon Abdul Gayoom, on charges ranging from terrorism to corruption.More than a quarter of a million people were eligible to vote in around 400 polling booths across the coral islands. Yameen, 59, is seeking a second five-year term.Hundreds of people queued outside polling stations in the capital, Male, early on Sunday. On some islands, people started queuing on Saturday night.“I am voting to revert a mistake I made in 2013. I am voting to free President Maumoon (Gayoom),” Nazima Hassan, 44, told Reuters after voting in Male.Abdul Rasheed Husain, 46, in Male said he cast his ballot for Yameen to take the Maldives “to the next level”.In the polling booth at the Maldives embassy in Colombo, some voters had to wait for more than seven hours and hundreds of voters were still queuing.“Last time was much faster and much easier, but this time it’s a mess,” 20-year-old student Ibrahim Rafeek told Reuters.Ahamed Ihusan, a 24-year-old business management student, told Reuters that “if it is a free and fair election, the opposition will win.”Many opposition supporters blamed the Election Commission for the delay.“Yameen is trying to frustrate voters by having a shoddy process for the elections and a long waiting time of 6-8 hours in some stations. I appeal to all to be patient and not step back,” an opposition supporter told Reuters, asking not to be named.Mohamed Shareef Hussain, Maldives envoy to Colombo, said the Electoral Commission had not assigned enough staff, causing delays.Police late on Saturday raided the main opposition campaign office saying they came to “stop illegal activities”, after arresting at least five opposition supporters for “influencing voters”, opposition officials said.British Ambassador James Dauris wrote on Twitter that it was “easy to understand why so many people are concerned about what might happen on Election Day”.INTERNATIONAL MONITORS STAY AWAYMost poll monitors, including those from the European Union and the United Nations, declined the government’s invitation to observe the election, fearing their presence might be used to endorse Yameen’s re-election even after possible vote rigging.Transparency Maldives, one of the few election monitors on the ground, said the vote had gone smoothly.“Observers concluded that the polling stations were set up to ensure a secret vote in the vast majority of cases (99 percent). This was less clear in about 1 percent of all cases observed. These polling stations will be closely watched,” the independent organization said.The opposition’s joint candidate, Ibrahim Mohamed Solih, known as Ibu, told supporters he was confident of victory.“I appeal to everyone not to allow any space for unrest tomorrow,” he told a rally on Saturday. “Let the voting end peacefully and let the people decide what they want. The people are hungry for a change.”Yameen also urged voters to head to the polls and said he was confident of the work he had done in his first term in office to put the nation on a path of development.The country has been in political turmoil since February, when Yameen imposed a state of emergency to annul a Supreme Court ruling that quashed the convictions of nine opposition leaders, including Mohamed Nasheed, the country’s first democratically-elected leader and former president.Yameen has disregarded calls from the United Nations, several Western countries and India for an amicable solution to the crisis.Ahead of the vote, Human Rights Watch urged foreign governments to press the Maldives to uphold democratic rights.“Should the Maldives government fail to do so, they should impose targeted sanctions, such as those proposed by the European Union, against senior ruling party officials implicated in abuses,” the New York-based group said in a statement.last_img

The exhibition which will begin on 9 May will display her abstracts which are reflective of hope and faith and of assurance and conviction. Ekta Jain is a promising star on the horizon of art and artistry. Ekta’s artwork is autobiographical and bears a close resemblance to her never-say-die spirit and cheerful demeanour, finding vivid translation in her aesthetically pleasing formations and fabrications on the canvas.  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The core theme of Ekta Jain’s portrayals remain Hope and never to despair which cannot escape the on-lookers attention. The illuminated niches , ray of dance lighting in the dark crevices; beam of radiance dispelling the gloom- are subtle statements occupying the focal point in her creations.There is a symmetrical oneness in her apparently diversified expressions like her name which implies unity, uniformity, solidarity and  homogeneity. Her interplay with splashing colours started at a tender age till it metamorphosed into emphatic narrations.  Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixHer journey to urban spaces is punctuated by her desire to discover layers upon layers of soul’s responses to civility or lack of it. The innate desire led her to formulate and execute her concept without any formal exercise in art.Her arches link urban space to traditional architecture. Her paintings are like palimpsest. Elusive at times and evasive too, one thing that is sure is that Ekta Jain’s work never fails to impact, impress and inspire.last_img read more
