Munavvar’s selection a tactical move



Quoting reliable sources, the local media reports that Gasim Ibrahim has selected Dr. Mohammed Munavvar as his running mate. This appears to be a tactical move by Jumhooree Party to establish a base in the South, following the failure of talks with another Addu person, Dr. Ugail.


Selecting a running mate from Addu will be helpful to Gasim's bid for the presidency, not just because Addu is the most populous atoll. Addu people have a disproportionately high influence on Maldivian politics because of two reasons. First, they are more politically conscious than people of other atolls. Second, they are more connected to the internet compared to most other atolls, which enables committed activists among them to launch web-based campaigns.


Munavvar was formerly the President of MDP, a post he won in an election last year, in which he prevailed over Ibrahim Hussein Zaki. However, this year he lost the party presidential primaries to Mohammed Nasheed (Anni). When Jumhooree party was launched, he resigned from MDP and joined the new party.


What will Munavvar bring to Jumhooree party from Addu? Judging from his showing in the past two polls, he does have a core of loyal supporters in the atoll. However, in a four-way contest with MDP, DRP and Hassan Saeed, the share of votes Jumhooree Party actually gets may be somewhat less than what either Gasim or Munavvar expects.


Despite this, all in all, Munavvar is likely be positive at least in Addu for Jumhooree Party, which currently does not have sufficient party cadres in Addu to launch an effective campaign. With Munavvar's appointment the Party can immediately put to use his core supporters, an important consideration given the shortage of time left for the election.


At the national level, things are more difficult to predict. Unlike Dr. Ugail, Munavvar comes to Jumhooree Party with a heavy load of baggage, some of that positive and some negative. Only time will tell which way the load will tip.

MDP supporters in Addu will now follow Munavvar to join Jumhooree party

There aren't any MDP supporters in addu now. The general inclination is towards Hassan Saeed.

Gasim is likely to go down by making one of the biggest contemporary political failures his wing man. Good luck with that.

i think it's too late for Munavvaru. He might get some supporters from Addu but don't expect much. I think very few. I don't think Munavvaru or Qasim can be good candidates.

Dr. Munavvar is a failed politician. He better practice Law @ his Law firm.

i left MDP not because i support munnavar. I am not haapy with munnavar performance during his time in maumoon cabinet.
So i dont think he could bring about the change that we need now.
The days are gone that, when hussain shahid, aslam came we the people gave vote. Now we are not givving it away that easy. we know that they are in there for their own benefit.
Ask hussain shahid,
who gave you the car which u sold to futhoor?
who financed your sons higher education before and now?
who financed yours business?

and ask ali moosa/masalas\
who financed your sons education. gasim first refused to aid , but when hussain shahid intervened he gave. isnt this the truth ali.

speak up ppl. u all are in for personal benefit, not for ours.

Munavvaru was a partner of the former corrupt regime, and bringing him into Jumhooree Party means they don't care if they get Votes. and they think that the can grab votes from Addu with Help of Munawwaru. but the reality is that he does not have lots of Support from Addu, Gasim has been mislead

Anonymous said...

While noting that there are number of politically conscious people in Addu, it is rather naive to assume that Adduians will always follow the shadow of Munnavaru.

Munnavaru had most of the opportunities anybody could have, simply based on his place of birth. Adduans elected him to Peoples Majlis, and to MDP presidency, but Munnavaru failed to connect to the people. Munnavaru had enough opportunities simply because he happened to have born to the atoll. We have better alternatives who are more concerned of our atoll, and the country.

Munnavaru needs to know his vathanee card has been used up. We will not allow him to use us anymore.

None of you know what is there in Addu or what is not. So to confuse people surfing the net don't post fake comments like there is no supporters of MDP.But know that I am one of those who support MDP. you are just a piece of shit. hope the moderator of this blog publish this. MDP will win the upcomming presidential election. KEEP THAT IN MIND ALWAYS.

Anonymous said...

Qasim's choice of Munavaru could possibly result in loss of votes for Jumhooree Party in general. Likely that Munavvaru may collect some from Addu but there are so many families who have experienced the atrocities of Gayyoom while Munavvaru was the AG. Many people still remember that.

One may change his surroudings but the person remains the same. Munavvaru will still be the same person.

Anonymous said...

There MDP supporters in Addu as evident from the relatively high turnout at Anni's speech week before last.

Munavvar becoming Buruma's runnignmate will not reduce MDP's support in Addu. It will affect hassan Saeed though. Munavvar supporters in Addu would have gone with Hassan Saeed if Munavvar was not in the race.

Anonymous said...

Fine! Dr Munavvar found the most suitable candidate from his point of view for the multiparty election fight. Isn't Munavvar aware that Gasim has one of the biggest International Loans in The Maldives; he has loans from the banks in the Maldives; he is also now in charge of the Fiscal Policies of The Maldives? I can see only few bunch of groups who are with Munavvar but let's see how much influence he has over Adduans.

Anonymous said...

Dr Munnavvaru does not command a big enough loyal support base in Addu for Jumhooree Party to win the elections. Qasim is taking an enormous risk in making Munavaru his running mate, but if Qasim prevails, Munavvaru can be an asset to Qasim's Administration. With or without baggage, Munavvaru will be an asset to any administration.

hi,in your article i see that you have written munavvar and dr. ugail. please note that munavvar is also a dr. thanks...hope i assisted in your path to fight your ignorance

Hassan does not have any considerable support in his native atoll, Addu. Simply because he is the person to send so many democracy advocates to Jail. Unlike Anni & Qasim, who r champions of Democarcy, Hassan was destroying the movement. That will always be his legacy.

Anonymous said...

Phewww... Finally, one of Addu's sons is in the race.Addu people are the most educated and and richest and deserves a say in the presidency.

Munawwar is a man of integrity, virtue, education and all things that exemplify a leader from Addu. He is also a political success story of modern times.

Ofcourse, Maummon is jealous of Munaawar.

Anonymous said...

Munavvar's arrival means lot of support for Gasim Ibrahim, Munavvar though silent have lot of gears to surprise the dictator. A source close to Maumoon said, that Gayoom was very happy when the news spread that Munavvar is not likely going to be selected. We should not forget munavvar is the first person to come up with the issue that Gayoom cannot context under the new consitution, he is the only person who gave a legal argument.

I support Gasim's decision. this is a very good decision

Anonymous said...

Pls don't speak about what you don't know. Gasim has no any international loans. Yes, he has some loans in the Banks of the Maldives like other business people. Despite his loans, he is helping poor people in health and education for the last 25 years. Can anyone show me such a person in this Maldives. I trust Mr.Gasim, and I'm sure he will make Maldives a prosperous place for all Maldivians. I don't care about Munawwar, as he is just Deputy president who doesn't have any power accept the name.

MDP supporters in Addu were mdp supporters because in addu we thought we will get some money soon but now we will support jumhooree and will now follow Illiyas Ibrahim and Munavvar so its best to join Jumhooree party

mihar said...

It's a tactical one. One should understand that MDP members/supporters are notere because of Dr Muna.Dr Muna and Qasim are people of bravery. and Dr Saeed too cannot wipe out the suuport MDP has In Addu. Simply can write out articles/comments thinking that people will accet what ever he wreites. but this will not.

Anonymous said...

any one who thinks that munavvaru will dominate support of Adduans will fail in this matter. He is filled politician so far. he filed because of silence as it has been said "too many people suffer in silence, becaus theey are affraid that love willnever come in their way" May Allah almighty bless Dr Munavvru.

Gasim did a bid mistake in selecting his running mate...
the ideal person for him, in my opinion is Dr.Hassan saeed...cox both of them follows almost same manifesto...One more..if Dr.Hassan rejects to be as gasim running mate..than gasim can try information minister Mr.Nasheed for running mate...Gasim pls not Munnavar.
If u wanna be successful on this be wise...

tube said...

Hey u ppl why don't u open yours and see beyond this tycoon Gasim's money for God's sake. He is not a nice person just someone who plays with ppls mind to get what he want. He is not going to do anything for the ppl of Maldives. If he was elected he will stay there for awhile till he achieve what he wants for him and his family and then rush off abandoning us. Thats what he has been doing all these days.

Btw Gasim is not the only one who is helping the poor ppl of our country there are other more sincere ppl who help much more lovingly even though they don't have as much money as Gasim. Anyway what money Gasim have is rightfully ours not him alone so naturally he will have to help us all.

Anonymous said...

I think Abdulla Waheed is having very less information about selecting Ugail as running mate of Mr. Gasim. I wonder who knows Dr. UGAIL. Has he ever serve the Maldivans? will anybody be ready to give it in a golden plate? yes of course a group of people who can sit on Ugail's head or he can be puppet of them will definitly need to bring him.
Think of the nation not personal benifit my dear Maldivians.

After munawar lost the mdp primaries most people think munawar as a politial corpse. He is just a loser you got to admit it.

Anonymous said...

In a party system we should vote for the party, and most important person in the election is the presidential candidate not his running-mate. Munawwar might have failed when competing with Anni. This doesnt mean that Munawar isnt popular or an incapable person. we must remember that Anni is the most popular reformist in the recent history of Maldives. So competing with Anni within MDP would be difficult for any person. With Munawars past experience and knowledge he could perform well as a vice president with Gasim. Gasim is a kind hearted humble person from a lower class familiy. He is a brave and successful person in evry aspect of life. So as a president he could perfom in a way one cudnt imagine.

Dr Munawwar should be tried for the crimes and injustices committed against thousands of Maldivians, specially young people for prosecutions, trials, and torture and murder in the infamous jails of Dhoonidhoo, Hinmmafushi and Maafushi during his 10 year as Attorney General period. As Attorney General, a professional lawyer, he violated the Maldivian Constitution by agreeing to prosecute people barring and ignoring their Constitutional right to defend themselves. Anyone who has violated the Constitution must be charged for high-treason. Just as Mumoon is responsible for the many crimes, we should never forget Dr Munawwar's share of responsibility. He was fully aware of the brutal methods of interrogation through which "confessions" were obtained from defenseless detainees. Not only he kept quite for 10 long years to allow this injustices to take place, but he was a true partner of it until he was kicked out of the cabinet. Has not been the case, who knows, he would still be with Muaumoon.

Anonymous said...

Ask yourself how many votes did Munavvaru got from Addu during the MDP primaries. How many votes did Munavvaru baged from the rest on MDP primaries? If Qasim is choosing a running mate wouldn't it be better to choose a more popular figure instead of Munavvaru? Munavvaru is an extra baggage for Qasim to carry along the way which will not reap any fruits. Munavvaru is basically a full stop in an essay.

HudhuKaalhu said...

this is hopeless. adduans are dividing the nation by claiming themselves superior. they dont look for who can do the job best, but rather look for an adduan. i dont mind supporting an adduan when the person is most capable. but reasoning based on differentiating adduans from people from other atolls just show a little less civilization.

after all, division of people to nations is an inefficient way, according to a former Chzek Republic president. He suggested that people should be grouped according to their principles. Adduans taking this current view do a bit too less for a good cause.

hope they mature their thinking soon enough, before we all regret it.

wonder what Munawwar will do if Jumhoori loose the election, whether he will try to in filter to the wining party. I am a MDP member from day one, i didnt see Munwaary doing any loyal work to the party, other than few stage talks with full of empty promise.Lets see what Munwaaru would do this time. Well, we need golhaaa to be out at any cost, whoever comes to be the head of the country other than golhaa is fine with me.

Anonymous said...

i dont think Munawaru is a failed politician. he attempted to restructure the internal democracy in MDP. Anni’s arrogance and his belief in bayfulhisum and Zakis biased policies led Dr. Munawaru to realise MDP can not function as a transparent and accountable party. MDP was born as a political party but now it works as an oligarchy with vested interests possibly deislamisation of Maldives.

i think its not Munwaru who should be tried in a court of law. Mamoon Abdul Gagyoom being the commander in chief of police and para-military gave shoot to kill orders against Mafushi jail inmates. Also Abdul gayoom played a key role in former dictator Nasirs government. Nasir was responsible for gross human rights abuses during his reign of terror. Its time to investigate the role Mamoon played in Nasris government in orchestrating Havaruthinadhoo massacre.

Let's see now, Dr.Munawwar wanted to get moving, but he never did the packing nor did he wear any clothes for the trip.

So he was just dozing off, while his three modes of transport left the station.

First the aeroplane left and he found this out at the end of the stairs when there was nothing to get on, so he fell off to the tarmac and lay there.

Second, he missed the bus while waddling through the mud and got some nasty black smoke into his face, so lay there choking.

Now he missed the boat while it just left the jetty, but jumped and got in somehow.

He looked down and found out that he was wearing his underwear in the wrong order. Like superman! But he aint no superman and he knows that too well.

Anonymous said...

If that was the intention, thats a mistake that Gasim would regret. Surely, Gasim would not get even 10 more votes coz of Munawwar, On the contrary he would loose support of factions. Dr Hassan may be the person who would benefit from all this. Gasim review ur decision, if not u too would end up like Munawwar. We adduvians were looking for an educated, and "complete person" to be ur running mate, not a failure and alchaholic.

Anonymous said...

I dont find any advantage in allocating munawwaru as gasim's running mate to win addu or south votes. firstly, he is a failure and who on earth expects him to be an atractive person to win votes from anywhere. secondly, even if an angel comes down as gasim's running mate, people in the maldives are not dumb idiots to elect him as their president. A fool as a president in this 21st century where we have so many educated people in the country. The guy reading from right to left when he give english speeches. Nay we cant do this

Dr. Munavvar is not a failed politician. Time will tell who are failed peopled. It's true that Dr. Munavvar was not successful in bringing the democratic changes that he aspired to bring,due to many reasons, but it does not mean that he is a failed person. You guys wait and see who are going to be failed politicians.

Well, Gasim and Munavvaru both has proved themselves to be incapable in my point of view. Just because Gasim happens to be the famous philanthropist does not mean he has the calibre for presidency. Adduans have seen the day Munavvaru favoured his supporters for his father.So much for being virtue.

where mr qasim is concerned do u knw how he had been spending for the poor,health n education?
it all cam from the undistributed service charges from his resorts!!

There is Also a 3rd reason if you forgot, Most of the people from Addu can Also be Bought Very Easily too. History talks isn't it?

I wonder who doesn't know him in the Maldives. Those who don't know will surely have heard of him and his achievements. Dr Ugail has a proven track record in his field. No Maldivian has achieved what he has achieved on a world stage. Isn't that enough for us to trust in his ability to serve us Maldivians.

Most of the comments against Muwaru are basically personal attacks , not valid political points. let me put it in this way. who has not failed in politics? Is Anni not a failure? Well, he is a big time failure. Is Ibra not a failed person? He surely is a failed boy. Both Anni and Ibra pledged to remove Maumoon frm pwer. Both have tried to topple Gayoom through mass demonstrations. Both failed and on top of all, today MDP members are leaving the party at an unexpected rate, in over few months time then largest political party will become the smallest party. The blame goes to Anni and his immature policies. Anni promised he has no intention for standing for presidency and he is a guy who doesn’t know how to stand by his words. To me he is the most unfit guy for the top office.

Dr. Munavvaru is a Russian Vodka. He studied @ Russia.

Vodka weights 0.5 kg a bottle and is used to get drunk.

Drinking vodka has the disadvantage of getting drunk, which means your view will move in circles (the more vodka, the faster the movement).

Vodka should be used only in cases when there isn't a soldier behind the corner.

THE SECRET BLACK BOX:
2003 November, Somewhere in Attorney General's Office

The phone rings and rings. After ten rings the incumbent Attorney General picks up the phone. The negotiations fail. He would not settle for a lower post. After ten years in Cabinet, he would not agree for a demotion. He puts the receiver down. He walks slowly to a filing cabinet and picks up piles of papers and documents carefully concealed in a secret compartment. He had hidden all papers knowing that a day like this may come. With this information he could fight any enemy in government. Everybody wants to lay their hands on those files. With this powerful resource he could one day become unbeatable. He takes the papers home and puts them in a black box made out of a strong material. He deposits the key safely. Everybody would be hunting for that key for years. But the KGB training in Russia was for a purpose.

He promises that the black box will be opened. He assures the members of the party that if he becomes the party president the content of the black box will be laid bare for the whole country to see. The evil man in the palace will be defeated in five months.
The story is based on the fight for the key to the black box, which contains classified information and state secrets including the details of the murder of Sylivia in a guest house in Male', the sinking of MV Victory near Hulhule, and the UFO landings in Kaashidhoo. The black box contains the secrets of Amin Didi assassination, location of peaceful nuclear plant in Baa Atoll and volumes of scientific research on the phenomenon known as Kadumathi Elhun.

Everybody talks about Gasim philanthropy. Today a seventyish lady came to me asking for help for his grand kid and herself to go to Male for medical care.

I suppose she was going from door to door begging people to help, while fasting. I didn't give her a single cent as I am not able to do so as my situation is worse than her.

The only difference between me and her is that she is willing to sell her soul to anyone who offered her something while I prefer to die than sell my soul to the devil.

Where the hell on earth is this so called Mega-philanthropists office when such old people while fasting and running around in this 35+ Celcius. How does a person apply for help from this pseudo philanthropist. That is just a false legend created concerning Gasim. there is no fundamental truth in that at all. Helping his staff and their family are no reason to believe him as a philanthropist. If the staff are paid their deserving salary and benefits in the first place, will not have to come for help when they get sick.

Dr Munawwar had the opportunity to serve Addu Atoll. But he failed. He failed to introduce party system. He failed to bring tourism to Addu Atoll. He was the architect of the corrupt deals of Abdullah Shahid and Ibrahim Hussain Zaki. The fact that he failed in MDP primary clearly shows that his presence will narrow down Gasim's votes. Gasim is not an educated person so he might not be aware of this. I call the republican party members to make Gasim aware on this.

Piss Piss. Some people brings personal vendetta forefront when there are lots of educated southerners around the political spectrum of the nation.
can someone tell who are the so called politicians who dont have the stigma of anti social behaviors? Did anni ever indulged in alcohol. What about ibra? if you have listen to Annis one of interview to alajzeera, he stressed that Islam is kind of menace to our society however most religious zealots of our country had no formal Arabic medium education. In that, he stressed the first thing he would be doing would be closing down arabic medium Madrasas in maldives. think about this and his anti religious fervor. what about ibra. ibra is a staunchest advocate of secularism and western materialism in our country. look at his family back ground. Roumors say that irbas sister was among the first converts to christianity in maldives.

Appointment of DR. Munavvaru as a running mate of Buruma would not bring much support for JP from Addu either. There's Anni, Hassan Saeed and Maumoon among them to get an equal ammount of votes from Addu.

The best Running Mate for Gasim is Dr.Munavvar, and there is many support from Addu and the south.
I think if Gasim changes this then there will be many people from south who will not like Gasim. The reason Gasim will then look for some one from Male, this is not acceptable. This will show that Gasim also using Maumoon policy of making a difference between islands and male.
