    This is the exact situation some of the MPs projected when the first bill in support of the multi party system entered into the parlimentry discussion 5yrs ago.In our part of the world(south asia)multi party system has brought nothing but misery to the entire nation, and I challenge any body who says that we Maldivians will enjoy prosperity and peace under this system.
