Speaking at a campaign event, Addu Mayor Nizaar said that a second term was deserved for President Solih.
Underscoring that Addu residents were with MDP because of their fondness towards the party’s policies – he said that the policies can only be enforced if MDP remains in power.
He added that this could only be easily achieved by President Solih.
“We are happy because all work necessary to fulfill the pledges made to Addu residents to become elected have been carried out by the government when coming back to seek our support after applying for a second term,” Nizaar said.
Noting that manifesto for Addu’s development was created with the collective needs of Addu residents – Mayor Nizaar said that President Solih was working towards fulfilling all matters listed in the manifesto.
“Addu City is the island with the largest population in the Maldives. Development of Addu City is a difficult task for each administration. Nevertheless, evidence at all districts of Addu City shows that if work is carried out with proper planning, it can be done,” he said.
On this note, Mayor Nizaar said that Addu road development project was amongst the largest project initiated at Addu City by President Solih’s administration – which will see the development of roads up to 100 kilometers up to modern standards, with asphalt.

“Hopefully, we will go to this year’s presidential election after completing Addu City roads,” he emphasized.
