Home Minister and Adhaalath Party President Imran Abdulla have urged all MDP members to serious consideration before voting in the upcoming internal election. 

MDP's campaign to select a Presidential candidate for the next elections is underway, with President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih and Party President Mohamed Nasheed fighting to win the election. 

Reacting to the development, Imran tweeted that the party's primaries are in the national interest even if it is not directly related to others.

He said a lot of issues related to national interest were behind the primaries.

It is important that all the honourable members of the party thought about it at that time

Said Imran

Opposition Leader and Former president Abdulla Yameen Abdul Gayoom were last months sentenced to 11 years in prison by a criminal court after he was handed over the party's presidential ticket.

With the presidential election around the corner, the opposition has been staging a series of protests in the name of 'Haram Hukum', alleging that he was sentenced under the influence of the government.
