“Investigative departments have been politicized and their reputation has been soiled in front of the citizens. We are coming out against injustice, to free state institutions, to bring back justice to the nation. We are coming out to bring back the millions lost in state funds. We will establish a government that abides by the principles and morals of Islam. Our government will provide basic services to the citizens without discrimination between parties and we will enhance opportunities for students for higher education. Will involve youth in establishing policies. Opposition-led government will ensure women are respected and protected like they deserve. We will ensure civil service employees receive adequate wages and we will not sack any state employees from their posts unlawfully. We will give adequate power for island councils and transport between islands will be made more convenient” Ibrahim Mohamed Solih.
