MPs vote against pay cut proposed by Kulhudhuffushi South MP

MPs vote against pay cut

Vilufushi MP Riyaz Rasheed of the Dhivehi Qaumee Party criticised Nasheed for suggesting a pay cut. “The honourable member will know the benefits of receiving two salaries, he was in the Special Majlis and he was a minister,” he said. “We certainly haven’t had an opportunity like that.”

“I support the spirit of the bill, but I don’t support the purpose of it,” said Hoarafushi MP Ahmed Rasheed. He said Nasheed was proposing bills to waste parliament’s time and further his political career. “Don’t use this Majlis as a tool to fool the people,” he said.

Baarah MP Mohamed Shifaz described the legislation as “useless”, saying Nasheed was proposing bills because “two people got fired or because he feels somebody’s salary is too high”.


It is nice to see that MPs today are saying things like this. That the bill presented by Kulhudhuffushi South MP Nasheed, has made the Majlis ponder upon the enormous responsibilities put on their shoulders and the importance of making the Majlis a place of responsible behavior rather than a stage for the mockery of democracy and reform.

Now they have in their vocabulary a phrase which says “wasting time” on “useless” things, and the need to have a “purpose” in the things that they do.

Nasheed’s argument

    The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 fresh blue cheese[url=]buy fresh blue cheese[/url]

    Hi guys,I know this might be a bit off topic but seeing that a bunch of you own websites, where would the best place be to host. Someone recommended I use [url=]Blue Host[//url] for $6.95 a month which seems like a great deal. Anyone here on using them?
