Jumhooree Party (JP)’s leader Qasim Ibrahim said the opposition alliance will win the upcoming presidential election with more than 80 percent of the votes.
Qasim said this while speaking via Skype at the special ceremony held at M. Kunooz to celebrate the party’s 10th anniversary on Friday night.
Qasim said the whole country is in deep trouble and the people are suffering due to the lack of justice in the country.
Expressing happiness at the work of the opposition leaders, Qasim said they will not allow the country to remain in this deep abyss for long.
Qasim said there is no doubt that the opposition presidential candidate Ibrahim Mohamed Solih would be sworn into office after winning the upcoming election. Solih would win the election with 80 percent of the votes, he said.
Qasim stated that he appeals the people of the country to vote for Ibrahim Mohamed Solih and bring him to power. Qasim also called on the people to be careful about the re-registration process and not to sell their votes for a bribe.
Qasim also noted that all the opposition members are being unconstitutionally convicted and jailed on terrorism charges . The sentences issued on him, former President Mohamed Nasheed and other political leaders are unjust, he said.
The bills passed at parliament after barring 12 members from sessions are also violations of the constitution, Qasim said.
Qasim stated that it is a pleasure to have Nasheed partake in JP’s 10th anniversary ceremony and thanked Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP)’s former President Ibrahim Ismail for attending the ceremony.
Qasim also thanked all those who supported and aided JP during the difficult times the party and its members had recently been facing.
