Solih said that it was important for them to be part of the opposition’s successful campaign.
Solih said that the opposition parties had joined together for various reasons including oppression, job insecurity, and imprisonment of opposition members. He added that billions have been lost through state embezzlement, which could have been used for development of water supply and sewerage systems in the islands.

He also said that the health sector needs to be improved and pledged to develop the health centers with high-tech laboratories in all the islands.
