Maldives - Second round of presidential elections postponed [fr]

France welcomes the holding of the ballot for the first round of the 9 November presidential elections, as well as the high voter turnout of the Maldives.

France is concerned about the decision of the Supreme Court to postpone the second round of the elections to 16 November, beyond the time allowed by the Constitution.

France calls upon all the political forces of the Maldives to avoid any delay in the democratic process so that the second round of the presidential elections can be held, as desired by the people of the Maldives.
