Jumhooree Party (JP)’s secretary general Ahmed Sameer said the opposition’s running mate, to be chosen from JP, will be announced on July 10.
Speaking at the press conference, Sameer said that there is still some administrative work left before JP’s running mate can be announced, hence everything will be concluded and the name will be announced on July 10.
Sameer said as there are many contenders for the running mate among JP, the party will decide on the candidate, and stated that the administrative work is currently ongoing.
Sameer said some people are carrying out campaigns on social media depending on whom they support. However, he requested everyone to be careful not to harm the character and name of anyone while campaigning. The candidate will ultimately be chosen by the party members, and any other outside influence will not be accepted, he said.
Campaigns are already being carried out on social media for JP’s council member Aishath Nahula, MP Faisal Naseem, and MP Ali Hussain.
Sameer said all members of the party have an equal opportunity to seek the nomination.
