"It's been five years since citizens have been remaining in continuous fear. As the citizens keep observing, the current administration is seen passing bill by bill, carrying out acts of corruption right under the noses of watchful citizens. There doesn't pass a single day where I don't wonder what would happen if abducted journalist Rilwan and blogger Yameen were here. Those families who have been deprived of justice still remain in hope. Corruption is now habitual for the current administration".

Will never get enslaved in debt: Solih

"I will not touch even a single coin from the state funds and I will not be a President who enslaves the citizens in a debt trap.

Being deprived of justice: Abbas

"I would like to highlight the reform efforts of jailed MP Faris Maumoon, he has spent over a year behind bars. Many such political figures are being unjustly punished. Former President Maumoon Abdul Gayoom's case is also similar, he is receiving unjust punishment in incarceration. This is why we must think of it as a national responsibility to bring Solih into power. To elect him as our next leader. Why are Solih and Naseem special? They put nation before political beliefs. No matter which party you support, let us all become one to save the nation " says Abbas.
