ISLAMABAD – Pakistan has congratulated the people of Maldives on the peaceful conclusion of its Presidential election.

The foreign office spokesman Dr. Mohammad Faisal in a tweet said “Pakistan fully supports the democratic process in Maldives and will work with the new government to further enhance the partnership between the two countries.”

Maldives President Abdulla Yameen on Monday conceded defeat in elections and said he would arrange a smooth transition for president-elect Ibrahim Mohamed Solih.

“I have accepted the results from yesterday,” Yameen said in a televised address to the nation after Sunday’s election gave the joint opposition candidate 58.3 percent of the vote.
