He further emphasised that Male has said a categorical “NO” to Maldivian President Mohamed Muizzu and his policies within 58 days in office.
“Kudos @adamazim and to @MDPSecretariat on winning the Male’ Mayoral by-election! The capital city has said a categorical NO to President Muizzu and his policies – within just 58 days in office!” Abdulla Shahid posted on X.
As per the results of the 40 ballot boxes counted so far, Azim received 45 per cent of the votes while government candidate Azima Shukoor received 29 per cent of the vote, according to Adhadhu.
