Maldives Development Alliance officially recognised by parliament

The Maldives Development Alliance (MDA) has been granted official status in parliament after MP for Kurendhoo Ahmed Moosa joined the party led by tourism tycoon MP Ahmed ‘Sun Travel’ Shiyam Mohamed.

Amended parliamentary rules of procedure allow a party on whose ticket an MP has not been elected to be recognised once it has three MPs in the People’s Majlis. In addition to Shiyam and Moosa, the third MDA MP is Kudahuvadhoo MP Ahmed Amir.

Ahmed Moosa’s status as an MDA MP was announced at today’s sitting of parliament. Elected as an independent MP, Moosa previously joined the Jumhooree Party (JP) before leaving to sign for President Dr Mohamed Waheed’s Gaumee Ihthihaad Party (GIP) ahead of the presidential election.

The MDA is currently in a coalition with the Progressive Party of Maldives (PPM) backing its presidential candidate and parliamentary group leader MP Abdulla Yameen.
