MALEDIVES : International community is also concerned about the growing presence of parties espousing radical Islam in the Sunni-dominated country

The international community is also concerned about the growing presence of parties espousing radical Islam in the Sunni-dominated country. The island nation is known for its liberal traditions, but there is also an ongoing attempt to radicalize Maldivian society.


India, Maldives Reach Diplomatic Impasse


In the Maldives, the old authoritarian style of leadership and the politics of vendetta threaten to reverse the country’s hard-won democratic advances.

In a dramatic development, Mohamed Nasheed, who until last year was the democratically elected president of the island nation, took political refuge in the Indian Embassy in Male on Tuesday, after a court in the Maldives issued a warrant for his arrest.

The warrant was issued after Nasheed failed to appear at a hearing related to charges that he had illegally ordered the detention of chief justice Abdulla Mohamed in December 2011.
The arrest order sparked a controversy that led to Nasheed’s ouster in what the former president called a coup.

The warrant for Nasheed’s arrest has expired and the Maldives government has declared him a free man. However, the former president is unwilling to leave the embassy compound until authorities assure him that he will not be arrested and will be permitted to campaign in the presidential elections scheduled for September 7.

Nasheed’s refuge in the Indian embassy has dragged New Delhi into the Maldives’ domestic political turmoil. So far India has operated on Nasheed’s behalf, without interfering in the internal tug of war. Nonetheless, a section of the ruling elite in Male has accused New Delhi of meddling in the country’s domestic issues.

Last year, he was ousted as president and replaced by his former deputy Mohamed Waheed Hassan Manik, Nasheed accused India of siding with anti-democratic forces in the country.

Now it’s the other way around. According to news reports, the Maldivian government has asked India to respect its judicial independence and election commission.

The Maldives’ big neighbor, however, is openly siding with Nasheed, the first-ever democratically elected president on the archipelago. A statement made by India’s Ministry of External Affairs “called upon the Government and all political parties to adhere strictly to democratic principles and the rule of law, thereby paving the way for free, fair, credible and inclusive elections.”

On Thursday Indian External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid spoke via telephone with his Maldivian counterpart Abdul Samad Abdulla, but no concrete proposal has emerged to end the impasse.

These circumstances raise a few important questions. Why has India decided to back Nasheed now, after allegedly playing an active role in Waheed’s ascension to power last year? Further, what does the arrest of the former president mean for the democratic evolution of the predominantly Muslim Maldives?

Southeast Asia’s Biggest Telco Seeks Mobile Foothold in Myanmar

Singapore. Singapore Telecommunications Ltd., Southeast Asia’s biggest phone company, wants to focus on wireless services in Myanmar as it vies for the right to operate in one of the world’s last untapped mobile markets.

SingTel sent in its expression of interest for a phone license in the nation last month and is awaiting further details on the bidding process and terms of the permit, Chief Executive Officer Chua Sock Koong said in a Bloomberg Television interview with Haslinda Amin yesterday.

“Looking at the experience in other emerging markets, the mobile solution appears to be a more cost effective, a faster solution to provide communications infrastructure to the masses, particularly in the rural areas, very quickly,” she said. “While the market potential is very attractive, we would need to understand what the terms of the license issuance would be.”

SingTel, which owns stakes in the biggest mobile-phone companies in Asian emerging markets including Thailand, Indonesia and India, is seeking a foothold in a nation where only 9 percent of the country’s 64 million people have handsets. The nation’s fixed-line penetration rate is about 1 percent, the government said last month.

The nation wants to boost telecommunications coverage to as much as 80 percent of the country by 2016, the government said last month. That’s up from 5.44 million mobile-phone subscribers as of December. In SingTel’s home base in Singapore, there are more subscriptions than people.


SingTel said it will jointly bid with Myanmar partners.

‘Quite Exponential’

“The growth is going to be quite exponential, looking at how Asians use mobile phones,” said Carey Wong, a Singapore- based analyst at OCBC Investment Research Pte. “The challenge is consumer education. Initial sales won’t be great but once it takes off, it’s a developing market for them.”

Still, SingTel faces competition for the two Myanmar licenses the government plans to award by June. Malaysia’s Axiata Group Bhd., Singapore’s ST Telemedia Pte and Norway’s Telenor ASA were among phone operators that indicated their interest in the licenses.
