Democracy has Entrenched Itself in Maldives: Lok Sabha Speaker

Camp Office, Male (Maldives)

An Indian Parliamentary Delegation led by Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla called on the Speaker of Maldives Parliament (People’s Majlis) Mohamed Nasheed in Male on Sep 4. Recalling that both India and Maldives have shared historic ethnic, linguistic, cultural, religious and commercial links and enjoyed, cordial

and multi-dimensional bilateral relations, Mr Birla hoped that the two countries would continue to work together to foster even closer engagements in future.

Referring to the recent visit of Prime Minister Mr Narendra Modi to Maldives in June earlier this year, Mr Birla expressed happiness that in the past few months, democracy has entrenched itself in Maldives due to inclusive development-oriented and transparent approach.

Mr Birla congratulated Mr. Nasheed for successfully organizing the Fourth South Asian Speakers’ Summit and hoped that democratic roots and parliamentary practices in Maldives would be further strengthened under his able leadership. Mr Birla observed that it has been an enriching experience to work together with Maldives on important global issues such as SDGs and climate change.

Mr Birla said that the young and enthusiastic Parliamentarians of Maldives impressed him with their skills. He invited Mr. Nasheed to visit India during the next Winter Session of Lok Sabha along with a multi-party delegation to see the functioning of India’s vibrant democracy. Mr. Nasheed accepted the invitation.

Mr Birla also offered to help Maldives Parliament in drafting its legislative proposals and also in organising capacity building courses for Parliamentarians and Officials of the People’s Majlis, in New Delhi and Male, to further enhance their contributions in their country’s holistic development.
