Yearbook 1999

Maldives. In November, general elections were held to 42 of Parliament's 50 seats. According to Countryaah official website, a new constitution, which came into force in 1998, provided greater scope for political debate and civic influence. Since political parties are not allowed, the opportunities to conduct organized opposition are still limited. Eight parliamentary seats were appointed directly by the president.
