Leader of the PPM Parliamentary Group, Ahmed Nihan Hussain Hussain Manik, has said that the opposition cannot accomplish something they couldn't within the past 40 days. 

Speaking at a press conference held by the governing party today, MP Nihan said that there is no point in talking about the 16th of this month and there is a strong Commander in Chief ready to take the country into peace. 

Indicating to the opposition protest rally set for this Friday to overthrow the government of President Yameen, Nihan said that if a vehicle of any sort is used in an illegal activity, the state reserves the right to cancel it's registration and other permits. 

MP Nihan said that President Yameen did not use the funds transferred to his account from SOF, the company with the highest amount of money from the embezzlement of the MMPRC and the funds are now under the jurisdiction of the Anti-Corruption Commission. 

Nihan said that he is not aware why one million Maldivian Rufiyaa was transferred to his account and those funds have been set aside until it is decided that they came from MMPRC. 

The Vice President of PPM, Abdul Raheem Abdulla (Adhurey) also spoke at the press conference today saying that this is the only government to investigate and take action against the corruption inside itself. 

Responding to the claims by the opposition that say the government has taken over the power of the law, Adhurey said that he remembers the day "the big lock" was placed on the door of the Supreme Court during the MDP government and the people remembers the day the Judicial Service Commission was hijacked. 

Earlier today, Maldives Police Service said that they have received reports about influential people in the atolls are being forced to secure fishing boats and other vessels to bring people to the capital for the opposition rally on Friday. 

Police said that they have received reliable Intel that an attempt is going to be made to create unrest in the capital and overthrow the government but the police would not allow it to happen.
