Deputy Speaker of the People’s Majlis, Eva Abdulla called in sick on Sunday, with which Sunday’s parliament sitting was halted.

This comes at a time the no-confidence motion against Speaker of the People’s Majlis and Former President Mohamed Nasheed was placed on Sunday’s agenda.

In her letter sent to the parliament, Eva noted that she had tested positive for Dengue.

However, Eva called in sick on the day the speaker’s no-confidence motion was placed on the agenda, even after she presided over the parliament sitting on October 24 while being positive for Dengue.

The 15th sitting of the third session of the third year was scheduled for 9am, October 29.

Nasheed’s removal from the post of speaker of the People’s Majlis has been sought under Article 82(b) of the Constitution of the Maldives.

Voting on issues was also on Sunday’s agenda.

On October 25, the main ruling Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP) has issued a three-line whip to vote in favor of the no-confidence motion against Nasheed.

The notice regarding the no-confidence motion submitted against Speaker Nasheed was sent to him on October 12.

The letter addressed to Nasheed, who is also the MP for Central Mahchangoalhi consistency, reads that the People’s Majlis received a resolution signed by 49 lawmakers, seeking to remove Nasheed from the post of Parliament Speaker on October 9.
