Last Saturday, Mohammed Muizzu won the presidential election in Maldives. Mohammed Muizzoo is the leader of the Progressive Party of Maldives (PPM) coalition and is known for its close relations with China.

This alliance had openly supported Chinese loans and investments in the past.

With his victory, speculations had intensified that the attitude of Maldives, which till now has been following the ‘India First’ policy of current President Ibrahim Mohammad Solih, would change and this could become a problem for India.

However, Prime Minister Narendra Modi congratulated Muizzu on his victory and talked about increasing cooperation between the two countries in future.
