Can Gayoom stand for President again?

Even before and after the Chapter on the President of the Republic was amended, opposition MPs had requested Speaker Qasim Ibrahim to clear any confusion whether the work that was being carried out was amending the current Constitution or coming up with a new Constitution.

Qasim replied that from the letters sent by President Gayoom to the Majlis, and from the regulations regulating the Majlis, it was evident that the Constitution was being amended, not that a new Constitution was being established. When he said that, he received applause from opposition MPs and some members of the public who attended the sitting.

Jihad on a Tiny Scale

A Sri Lankan blogger writes;

Coming from a country with a raging internal conflict, personally, I am used to slightly more specialized weaponry. Like a suicide bombing. Or a Claymore mine. Or an AK-47. I find it difficult to comprehend a political assassination with a sharp pointed object first invented in the paleolithic era. It was not even a sword, a machete, or a rambo knife that was used; it was a kitchen knife, presumably stolen from a mother or a wife in the middle of cooking a tuna curry. How quaint, how homegrown…
