Maldives to leave Commonwealth after Warnings over Democracy

Maldives to leave Commonwealth after Warnings over Democracy
17 October 2016 Current Affairs: Maldives government in October decided to leave the 53-member Commonwealth of Nations. The decision was announced weeks after the organisation warned it of suspension by the Commonwealth Ministerial Action Group (CMAG) if it failed to take further steps to promote the rule of law and democracy.

Maldives had decided to leave the Commonwealth saying it was treated unjustly and unfairly by the Commonwealth.

Highlights : The organisation also asked Maldives to encourage political dialogue and release its opposition leaders and improve the democratic institutions.

• The nation was put on CMAG’s formal agenda on 23 September 2016 and cautioned that if it fails to saw progress in the six identified priority areas, then it will be suspended from the council of Commonwealth at its next meeting in 2017.

Maldives government decision to quit the Commonwealth has invited concern from several quarters within and outside the country. Commonwealth Secretary General Patricia Scotland expressed disappointment over the decision and hoped the move will be a temporary one.

The country came under international scrutiny after its crackdown on opposition leaders mainly after it jailed several members of different parties along with former President Mohamed Nasheed. Nasheed who was released on a medical leave went to London where he was granted asylum.
