Big win seen for Maldives president`s coalition

Male: The Maldives` opposition leader has accepted defeat but questions the credibility of the weekend parliamentary election in which President Yameen Abdul Gayoom`s coalition appeared to secure a big victory.
The Elections Commission has not released official results of Saturday`s election. But predictions based on the voting show at least 56 seats for Gayoom`s four-party coalition in the 85-seat Parliament.

Former President Mohamed Nasheed, whose Maldivian Democratic Party secured 24 seats, questioned the credibility of the election. It was conducted weeks after the Supreme Court sacked two election officials for contempt of court. Officials are still verifying ballot papers before confirming results.
