Progressive Party of Maldives' (PPM) running-mate Dr. Mohamed Shaheem Ali Saeed has advised against religious clerics inciting political discord in Maldives.
While speaking in a rally at Shaviyani atoll Foakaidhoo, Dr. Shaheem questioned the clerics about their choice of pledging allegiance to a movement strongly advocating for a secular state.
President Yameen's running-mate advised the country's religious clerics to abandon a 'lost cause' and show fealty to the ruling party's candidate.
According to Dr. Shaheem every administration will come with its flaws and issues, which requires responsible deliberation and resolve. The ruling party's running-mate also focused on the achievements in religious awareness in Maldives under president Yameen's administration.
