Background: The Maldives was long a sultanate , first under Dutch and then under British protection. It became a republic in 1968 , three years after independence. President Maumoon Abdul GAYOOM dominated the islands' political scene for 30 years , elected to six successive terms by single-party referendums. Following riots in the capital Male in August 2004 , the president and his government pledged to embark upon democratic reforms including a more representative political system and expanded political freedoms. Progress was sluggish , however , and many promised reforms were slow to be realized. Nonetheless , political parties were legalized in 2005. In June 2008 , a constituent assembly - termed the "Special Majlis" - finalized a new constitution , which was ratified by the president in August. The first-ever presidential elections under a multi-candidate , multi-party system were held in October 2008. GAYOOM was defeated in a runoff poll by Mohamed NASHEED , a political activist who had been jailed several years earlier by the former regime. Challenges facing the new president include strengthening democracy and combating poverty and drug abuse.
