Maldives Journalist Association (MJA) expresses concern over the lack of transparency by the Elections Commission in providing information to the media, regarding the Elections Commission’s decisions for the upcoming presidential election.

The Association notes that, following the Supreme Court’s decision to annul the results of the first round of the September 7th presidential election, and the Supreme Court order upon the Elections Commission to hold fresh elections, the Commission failed to hold a press conference to announce the Commission’s decision to hold the first round of fresh elections on 19th October, and instead, this information was provided separately, to selected media groups.

Maldives Journalists Association (MJA) is making this statement on regard the recent issues faced to the media while covering the protests organized by the opposition Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP).

Yesterday evening, police arrested a photographer of Haveeru Daily named Mohamed Sajid for allegedly disrupting the duty of the police, an allegation which Haveeru Daily strongly denies. Further, we have received reports that a group of people had tried to attack some of the news organizations. These are attempts which MJA condemns strongly.

Being an organization working for the rights of the journalists, we would not tolerate such attempts working to suppress the media.
