The deputy leader of Progressive Party of Maldives (PPM) Ahmed Shiyam has called out on ruling Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP) to practice what they preach.

The politician urged the ruling party to fulfill the pledges made to Maldivian citizens, while ensuring they remain honest with the public.

The PPM deputy and current Naifaru MP also stressed the public is capable in changing the 'status quo' of any political circumstance, and state powers must respect their wishes accordingly.

The lawmaker's jab comes at the relatively low attendees at MDP's 'Rahvethi Fathis' rally on Friday evening, 21 February.

The Friday evening's rally attracted the lowest number of public attendance in recent months.

While pro-government activists and ruling party sympathizers have justified the low attendance at the ruling party's rally, several of the public claimed the low attendance at MDP's recent rally is a clear indication of the waning support for the party and it's administration.

Meanwhile during the rally, the Parliament Speaker, Mohamed Nasheed who is at the helm of MDP urged the public to vote against PPM in the upcoming local council elections.

Furthermore, the parliament speaker had severely criticized former Minister of Housing Dr. Mohamed Muizzu.

Nasheed alleged Dr. Muizzu was significantly responsible for the infrastructural damage to Maldives capital - Male' City.

Dr. Muizzu is currently campaigning to become the next mayor of Male' City.
