Male City Council has excused Housing Minister Dr Mohamed Muizzu for the inappropriate comments made against the Councilors, citing that the Minister lacked political experience.
In a press statement, Council labeled Minister’s remarks that the “city council resorts to harassment around every corner” was a blatant lie. Council also stressed that the claims against the Councilors elected by the majority of the people was highly inappropriate.
Council further assured to assist the Housing Minister in his limited efforts due to his lack of experience. The statement also urged the Minister to apologize for any inappropriate comments made against the people of Male.
Minister Muizzu revealed that given the Ministry has to contact the Male City Council on a daily basis the “harassment” has led to several challenges expressed his disappointment over the council's actions.
“…Even if there is a regulation written in Dhivehi they interpret it the complete opposite of what it means. If that is the political policy they adhere to then I don’t think the people have to accept them. Resorting to harassment and obstruction over every matter is their order of the day,” Muizzu had said.
