Fisheries Minister Dr.Shainee have said that if all opposition parties agree to let former President Mohammed Nasheed run in 2018, government might allow it.

Speaking to the press today at the President’s Office, the minister said that the government cannot accept pre-conditions set by the opposition such as freeing convicted criminals and giving a free pass to those who owe millions to the state.

Dr.Shainee said that even in 2015, they wrote a letter to the court to give some leniency to former President Nasheed. He said that the UN representative also met the Chief Justice but the work was halted because it was seen that the opposition could not work together to achieve it.
