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.
