Maldives Parl to discuss no-confidence motion agai
Male: The Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP) of former president Mohamed Nasheed has moved a no-confidence motion to remove the Speaker of the country`s Parliament in what could be a new trial of strength.
The motion against Speaker Abdullah Shahid was moved in the last session and it will be taken up in the House tomorrow, with little prospects of its going through as the MDP has only 31 lawmakers in the House of 77.
The Parliament was back at work for the second term today after a month-long break.
Most of the other lawmakers are backing the present coalition government.
MDP lawmakers have charged Shahid of failing to follow parliamentary regulations, alleging that he had been making decisions relating to significant parliamentary issues without consulting other parties.
Nasheed says that he was forced to resign on February 7 in what he claims was a `coup`. He was replaced by President Waheed Hassan whose coalition government is currently ruling the country.
