The coalition claimed that such an incident would not be allowed to happen, despite the majority held by the MDP in parliament and the separate party, Democrats, which broke away from them.

Amid disagreements over the approval of four members of the Cabinet supporting the pro-China president, tensions escalated in the parliament on Sunday, a day after the clashes between pro-government and opposition MPs.

The MDP and Democrats, after deciding to block parliamentary approval for the four members of the Muijzzu Cabinet before voting, initiated opposition in the parliamentary meeting.

“MDP has gathered enough signatures for a joint impeachment proposal with Democrats. However, they have not yet submitted it,” said a source from MDP, as reported by Sun.com.

According to The Edition.mv report, on Monday, the MDP parliamentary group decided unanimously to present the impeachment proposal in the parliament.

Muijzzu, 45, defeated the current Indian candidate Ibrahim Mohammed Solih in the presidential election held in September last year.

MP Ahmed Thariq statement

MP Ahmed Thariq stated that the results of the previous presidential election clearly showed that the events in the country did not align with the aspirations of the MDP.

Thariq deemed the attempts by the MDP to remove Maldives President Muijzzu futile, pointing out that during the recent voting, some members of the party had voted against the party whip line in favor of Cabinet approval.

He said, “This proves that MDP does not have the numbers they desire.”

Impeachment process

To remove a sitting president, a minimum of 53 votes is required within the parliament. Thariq claimed that even by combining the members of the MDP and Democrats, they might not reach the required number. He was confident that some members of both parties would decline to back such a vote.
