Jumhooree Party (JP) leader Qasim Ibrahim has thanked former vice president Dr. Mohamed Jameel Ahmed and his team for placing their trust in him.
Qasim said this in a tweet on Sunday after Jameel, former youth minister Mohamed Maleeh Jamaal and former minister at the President’s Office, Abdulla Ameen, joined JP.
In addition to them, Qasim thanked former Minister of State for Defence Mohamed Ahmed Manik and former medical doctor at Maldives National Defence Force, Dr. Shah Mahir, for joining the party.
He also thanked former home minister Umar Naseer, who recently joined JP.
Although ruling Progressive Partly of Maldives (PPM) is bitter about such prominent figures joining JP, many say that it is a huge advantage for the party.
Members of the opposition say that all those who worked to elect President Abdulla Yameen have left his side, and only a handful, who doesn’t want to abide by the law, remain by his side.
