EU targets judicial reform discussions with President Waheed.
The European Union has said it will continue trying to work with Maldivian authorities to reform the country’s judiciary following requests for assistance made by Mohamed Nasheed “shortly” before Dr Mohamed Waheed Hassan became president this month in an alleged “coup d’etat”.
Protests to continue until date given for early elections: Nasheed.
Yesterday’s large anti-government protests ended peacefully in the early hours of the morning, and look set to continue for a second day.
Comment: Operation Haram to Halal – the Islamist role in replacing Nasheed with Waheed.
I will not attend the protests held now: Dr. Didi.
President of the Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP) Dr Ibrahim Didi has said that he will not attend the "mass" protest by MDP as it has carried on past the date approved by the party's body.
