That this House supports the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon, in his call for a credible and peaceful second round of voting for the Presidency in the Maldives; notes that this follows a decision by the Supreme Court to annul the results of the first round of voting in elections widely regarded by the international community as free and fair and that the run-off election had originally been set to take place on 28 September 2013; condemns those who are seeking to prevent President Mohamed Nasheed from participating in any future elections in the Maldives; further condemns the perpetrators of the arson attack that destroyed the Opposition-supporting Raaje TV station in Malé; and demands that the authorities take all necessary steps to bring the perpetrators to justice.
