The Elections Commissioner of the Maldives, Mohamed Ibrahim, is quoted as saying that the second round of presidential elections might be held earlier than the announced October 29 date, due to a conflict with school exams (most schools serve as polling stations).

The most likely date mentioned for this run-off election would be the day before, Tuesday, October 28, 2008. In either case, we expect the date of the run-off presidential election to be declared a public holiday.
