Jumhooree Party (JP) leader Qasim Ibrahim said if he desires to run in the Presidential Election, he will get that opportunity.
In an interview to VMedia from Germany, Qasim said there will never come a time when he is denied to run as a Presidential candidate.
JP will also have the chance to choose a candidate of its choice, as the Constitution is very clear, Qasim said.
Qasim said the joint opposition is currently working to choose a single candidate, and the work is being carried out swiftly. Even though some individuals are intimidated by this, the opposition will soon reach victory by the Grace of God, Qasim said.
“There will never come a time when I cannot compete, if I desire to compete in the Presidential Elections. The Constitution is very clear on the matter, and our party will also have the chance to name a candidate of their choosing. All four leaders of the opposition parties are working in unity to select a single candidate. This work will continue, even if some people are intimidated by it”, Qasim said.
Qasim said he is steadfast on the reform work and that he is doing it for the sake of the people and the nation. All the other joint parties and their leaders are also firm on this resolve, Qasim said.
Qasim also said that there should be stability and justice for the people in the society, and similar to all Maldivians, he too, will be benefited by it.
“If the people of the Maldives benefit from it, so will I. I too, will get justice” Qasim said.
