President Dr. Mohamed Muizzu must be elected for an additional term to save Maldives and build a ‘Dhiveheenge Raajje’ or a truly Maldivian country, says his special advisor, Abdul Raheem Abdulla (Adhurey).

Abdul Raheem, who is accompanying President Muizzu on his current tour of central Maldives, made the remark during a rally in K. Guraidhoo on Thursday afternoon.

Addressing the rally, Abdul Raheem said the ruling PPM-PNC did not run for office for the sake of any one individual, but for the sake of the country; to build a ‘Dhiveheenge Raajje’ and save the country from its current economic crisis.

He said that the people must also come together to maintain President Muizzu’s administration.

He added that the PPM-PNC remains firmly behind President Muizzu’s administration, “despite attempts by some envious individuals to create strife and discord against the government.”

Abdul Raheem said that President Muizzu is working closely with local councils. He said that this wasn’t something that previous Maldivian leaders had ever practiced and asked people to utilize the opportunity.

“In Sha Allah, we can build the Maldives we want within 10 years. Our goal is to provide President Muizzu the chance to rule this country for 10 years, no matter how brokenhearted it may leave some,” he said.

“We cannot get out of the ditch this country has fallen into in just five years.”

Abdul Raheem said that President Muizzu pays special attention to fulfilling the desires of the people, adding that it was evident from his current tour.

He also appealed for voters to elect pro-government lawmakers in the upcoming parliamentary elections, saying that the cooperation of Parliament was crucial to fulfilling the administration’s pledges.

“How can we reach our destination without brave and tireless sailors? The journey we have embarked on is a long one,” he said.
