The duo signed for the party in the presence of party leader Qasim Ibrahim.
Speaking at the ceremony, Qasim said the joining of two new MPs is an immense joy and development for JP. This shows the amount of trust they have in the party, he said.
During his speech, Qasim touched on the work the two MPs had done for the reform movement and stated they were even incarcerated due to this. He also spoke on the reason why MP Abdulla Ahmed had to resign from the party previously.
Speaking at the ceremony MP Ameeth said he joined JP to work in the reform movement both times, while MP Abdulla Ahmed detailed the reason he left JP the last time and thanked Qasim for his support and encouragement.
