Mr. Mohamed Nasheed, popularly known 'Anni' has made a clear lead in the presidential elections of Maldives against Maumoon Abdul Gayoom, the present incumbent ruling the country for 30 years since 1978. With just five boxes to be counted, Anni has already secured more than 50 percent of the total votes polled.
