What difference a 100 days makes: Dr Hassan Saeed

“In the Maldives, after the excesses of the Nasheed years, many people will instead have been looking for stable and dignified government,” writes Dr Hassan Saeed for local newspaper Haveeru.

That is why last week President Waheed marked his 100 days in office with a simple press conference, which through its demeanour demonstrated a strong contrast with the previous four years.

This contrast with the past was further reflected this week when Nasheed and his MDP celebrated and experienced justice at first hand. Judge Abdulla of Criminal Court to whom Nasheed, as the former President denied justice, this week, delivered justice to Nasheed!

The Government backed by the Attorney General’s legal opinion asked the police to evict President Nasheed and his MDP activists from the central government’s Usfasgandu land they have been occupying in the capital Male. The Government has a responsibility for the upkeep of that land so were well within their rights to seek control of property that they administer on behalf of the people.

The Police, seeking to clarify the legal basis of the Government decision, sought a court order from the Criminal Court. The Court decided that it cannot be clearly determined that the issue or case was within its mandate and therefore ruled that it cannot issue an order to dismantle the Usfasgandu area. This again shows that MDP allegations of one-sidedness of the Police and Judiciary are false.

Ironically the Chief Judge of the Court is Judge Abdullah whom Nasheed kidnapped and held in forceful custody for 21 days against court orders of all levels. Barely three months ago Nasheed planned to “abolish” lower courts and declared those judges “illegal”.

    100days ART OF DOING NOTHING:

    1-Without a Manifesto
    2-Without gov handover procedure
    3-Without Clear cut Policy’s on Econ,Religion,External Internal policy.
    5-Without Short term & Long term goals
    7-All major ITHTHIHADH Coalition partners DRP & PPM has clear cut National Development Policy’s which contradicts each others.
    8-Without development or implementation programs for (8th Feb to 2013)
    9-Without political agenda therefore Gov is in reactive mode rusher than Pro active.
    10-the time frame of Gov is very clear. Dr. Waheed Gov will remain until 2013 Presidential Election.

    100 days managed by Dr.Waheed & collation without any major or minor conflict among partners specially on public Media.

    These credit reflects to Dr.Waheed’s experience in UN agencies & few years practice with MDP Gov BRANDED BY A COALITION END UP WITH MDP it self no political partners as mention during Election 2008.
