The Indian government has refused to send its troops in the Maldives to ensure democracy despite the opposition’s demand. However, today India issued a statement making it clear that it does want democracy to be given a chance in this country.

In a press note, Ministry of External Affairs said:

“The State of Emergency declared in the Maldives on 5 February 2018 comes to an end this evening. It is our expectation that the Government of Maldives will not be seeking an extension of the State of Emergency so that the political process in the Maldives can resume with immediate effect.

After the revocation of the Emergency, democratic institutions including the judiciary should be allowed to function independently and in a fair and transparent manner in accordance with the Constitution. The order issued by the Supreme Court of Maldives on 1 February 2018 should be implemented in letter and spirit.

It is important that Maldives quickly returns to the path of democracy and the rule of law so that the aspirations of Maldivian people are met and the concerns of the international community are assuaged.”
