"... As I see it, President Solih will receive votes not only from MDP members but also from individuals belonging to other political parties as well as neutrals who are not affiliated with any party," she said.
She highlighted the warm reception received by the President during his visit to Addu City yesterday. A significant crowd had gathered in Maradhoo to welcome President Solih.
"For a long time, different governments have made promises to the people of Addu City. But today, we have witnessed that the work has actually begun. The President has visited while the projects are underway," Rozaina said, referring to the inauguration of Addu City's largest land reclamation project that took place yesterday.
