EC endorses MDP, JP charter amendments

Elections Commission (EC) of Maldives has endorsed the respective charters of both opposition Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP) and Jumhooree Party (JP).

Earlier the Maldives electoral watchdog stated they were in discussion with both parties post their respective congresses that had focused on amendments to their charters. EC had highlighted issues that needed further amendment from both parties, which was suggested to them.

EC had complained they did not receive verification whether the amended statutes on MDP's charter have been approved or not through vote of congress.

Similarly the electoral watchdog had dismissed JP's omission of clauses that have been deemed mandatory for political parties.

However EC on Sunday announced that it has endorsed the amendments put forth by both parties in their respective congresses.
