The opposition candidate, Mohamed Muiz, came to the forefront of the race, gaining over 46% of support. The incumbent president, Ibrahim Mohamed Solih, despite previous forecasts indicating him as the favorite, received only 39% of the votes. The elections in the Maldives are not only a competition between two candidates, but also between two superpowers: India and China. President Solih is closer to New Delhi, and the opposition candidate maintains close ties with Beijing.
