Maldives officials on Monday rejected a proposal by three of the country’s presidential candidates to hold a revote before the incumbent’s term ends in order to avoid a possible constitutional crisis.

The three candidates — in a rare instance of agreement — proposed that the Elections Commission move up its third attempt at holding the vote so it takes place before November 11 when President Mohamed Waheed Hassan’s term ends.

The Elections Commission had set the revote for November 9 and if no clear winner emerges a runoff election will be held November 16 five days after the presidential term ends.
