Mohamad Nasheed

review_the island president

The Maldives is a nation located in the Indian Ocean consisting of roughly 1200 small islands, and while a handful of them are as populous as the one pictured above the majority are beautiful pieces of green and gold paradise dotting the clear, blue ocean water like a breathtaking ellipsis. In 2008, Mohamad Nasheed successfully ended the Islamic country’s three decade despotic rule by persevering through threats and potential incarceration to win a democratic election.  As if that wasn’t enough of a challenge, Nasheed almost immediately began fighting for his country’s very survival on the international front. The country as a whole sits 1.5 meters above sea level, making it possibly the most low-lying nation on Earth, and by most accounts that number is shrinking due to rising sea levels caused by global warming.
