The opposition alliance’s presidential candidate Ibrahim Mohamed Solih said that he is well aware how a government is run and should be run.
During a special interview with VTV, Solih responded to a question saying that the long period he served in the political arena had well equipped him in the ways how a government should be run.
In addition to that, the coalition has the most experienced and qualified individuals to run a government backing him, he said.
“I can visualize and know how a government should be run, and along with the team of qualified individuals in the coalition there is no need for the people to be hesitant in this regard”, Solih said.
Solih said that people are witnessing how a government is run under President Yameen’s experience and people do not want that. It is clear that they are ready to say ‘no’ to such a government, he said.
With God’s Grace the people will see immense difference in a coalition government, he said.
Solih said that in democratic governance the most important factor is the parliament as this is the people’s voice and also the institute that keeps the government accountable.
While he had spent almost 25 years in the parliament, he had witnessed and learned how to run a government and also learned what a government has to be accountable for. He has also actively worked on these areas and therefore has a clear picture of how to run a government, Solih said.
Speaking about some of his experiences in the 25 years of serving in the parliament, Solih said that he chaired the Budget Committee, the Treasury, and the Economic Committee and also chaired the Security Committee. He was also in the drafting committee when the new Constitution was drafted, he said.
Furthermore he was also a member of the Tourism Advisory Board representing the parliament for a long period, Solih explained.
