The main opposition Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP) has appealed on the Elections Commission (EC) to provide a list of foreign observers and monitors who are to take part in the upcoming Presidential Election.

In a letter signed by MDP Secretary General Anas Abdul Sattar, addressed to the commission, MDP stated that the EC had revealed 51 observers and 34 monitors will be partaking in the September election from the international community and went on to appeal on the EC to provide a list of said observers and monitors to the party.

While accusations have surfaced against the EC for attempting to rig the election, the Joint Opposition coalition continues to state that they will not allow vote rigging in the September polls and that the coalition will defeat President Yameen by a large margin.

The opposition coalition further claims that they will ensure vote rigging is not likely to happen as they will be stationing professional and watchful observers and monitors at polling stations on the day of the ballots, slated for 23rd September.
