Maldives: Some Positive developments:

Paper No 5588           Dated 20-Oct-2013

By Dr. S. Chandrasekharan

Recent Developments in Maldives seem to have upset the international community and rightly so. When all the international observers termed the first and now annulled elections of September 7 as fair and credible, the Supreme Court took the extreme step of not only annulling the elections, but also giving specific guide lines to another constitutional body- here the Election Commission as to how the election should be conducted.

Maldives: Is President Waheed in Control?

Paper No. 5356                                       Dated 10-Jan-2013

By Dr. S.Chandrasekharan.

Looking at the developments in Maldives, one gets the feeling that President ( by accident as some prefer to call him) Waheed does not appear to be in control of the events. In a moment of frustration he is said to have remarked that "Everybody runs the State as they please" and this has been widely reported in the press.
