A POLITICAL CONUNDRUM

Written by
The political pot is back in ebullition and no doubt there are plenty of volunteers prepared to stoke the fire in the hope of cashing in come general elections time. In Mauritius, you have two types of politicians, those with sound political ideologies and convictions, always willing to do the best for their country and those whose only objective is either to line their pockets or enjoy the tapestry that goes with power and at times both.

La neutralité monétaire

Written by
Le prix Nobel d’économie Sir John Hicks affirmait que celui qui maîtrise l’économie monétaire comprend tout le fonctionnement de l’économie. Pour le paraphraser, on dira que celui qui conçoit bien le taux d’intérêt peut énoncer clairement les principes de l’économie monétaire.
La prorogation du Parlement pour préparer le projet de loi sur la réforme électorale fera sourciller pas mal de citoyens. En particulier, ceux qui pensent que les travaux parlementaires d’un jour par semaine sont insuffisants. Ils auraient souhaité qu’un jour entier soit réservé aux questions et un deuxième aux débats sur les projets de loi. D’autres diront que le Premier ministre Navin Ramgoolam a raison de se focaliser quasiment sur le « drafting » du projet de loi qui va « moderniser » notre système électoral. D’ailleurs, la semaine dernière, le leader de l’Opposition Paul Bérenger s’est prêté volontaire pour aider le gouvernement travailliste à préparer ce projet de loi.

Mélodrame politique

Written by
Présidence à l’indienne, présidence à la française et maintenant proposition de présidence à la Malawi/Zambie !
Sur le plan politique, ce présent mandat quinquennal n'est décidément pas de tout repos. Après avoir accompli son devoir de citoyen en mai 2010, la population est maintenue sous une tension électorale permanente par ses dirigeants, manifestement plus enclins à sauvegarder l'intérêt du pouvoir que celui de la nation.

Democracy - A 2nd Republic version

Written by
The stand of Ramgoolam as well as that of Bérenger, after the “failure” of their recent negotiations, shows that both remain hopeful of a second chance. This can be read through the lines of what they said during their most recent public statements. Surprised by the rejection of their conciliation within their respective grass root supporters, more so within the MMM, Ramgoolam and Bérenger seek to create new conditions for an acceptance. Will they succeed?

At cross roads or nearing the end of an era?

Written by
The much-awaited stand of the Government of Mauritius on the Constitutional Plaint entered by Rezistans ek Alternativ is ultimately known. The Attorney General Mr. Satish Faugoo who was present at the Supreme Court on Thursday told the media that a bill on electoral reform will be introduced at the National Assembly before the forthcoming general elections.  
My dear Billy,
Since the day the remarkable Remake was flushed down the drain, both the MMM and the MSM have been flaunting their parades of neophytes who have joined their ranks, but not their files. I am sometimes amazed, even bewildered and flabbergasted, by the people who engage themselves in active politics. Aren’t you, my dear Billy? Sometimes, I also admire them too.
PREAMBULE.  DWM [Democracy Watch Mauritius] a discuté et analysé les propositions contenues dans le livre blanc (ERCP)  sur la reforme électorale,  un important exercice pour notre démocratie. Le gouvernement a invité le public à s’exprimer sur ces propositions avant le 5 mai 2014.

Lifting the veil of power-game

Written by
Amid the hurly-burly after much dilly-dally of the burlesque comedy unveiled the end of a myth in the political cauldron and it came as a partial denouement. Never in the  history of MMM has the legendary hero stooped so pathetically low as to be booed and branded as a traitor by his own vociferous party members at Ambrose street Rose Hill, one of his last remaining strongholds, albeit shielded by a handful of bodyguards and bulldozers.
Since long, every five years our Mauritian citizens go to their respective polling station to vote for candidates of their predilection to represent them in Parliament; a democratic traditional system of voting.
