As stated in the article 26 of the Constitution of the Maldives, the article 25 of the International Convention on Civil and Political Rights and the article 21 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the right to vote is one of the most notable opportunities for the citizens to contribute to the functioning of a country in a democratic system. As such, the Human Rights Commission of the Maldives calls upon the State to announce a date for the presidential election without further delay.
