When the MSM withdrew from government, it clearly weakened PM Ramgoolam in spite of the latter's continuous denial. The MMM/MSM Alliance had all the chances of winning the next general elections, but Paul Bérenger blew it. The fact that Ramgoolam is prepared to share 30/30 tickets in an eventual PTr/MMM [...] alliance is clear indication how he has been weakened.

A POLITICAL MYSTERY TOUR

Some of our politicians might not be the brightest sparks intellectually but they have one quality or fault in common depending on your point of view, it is that they are very good at talking gobbledygook and excel in verbal gymnastics especially at performing somersaults. They can make a statement today and contradict themselves tomorrow without batting an eyelid. It has become more apparent lately with the unending change of direction regarding electoral reform and other associated matters. One day, they are ready to go the next general elections alone and the next day, they are prepared to go in a coalition with another party. Is it a case of split personalities or flight of ideas?

A POLITICAL CONUNDRUM

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.

The sudden U-turn of Paul has amazed me. Pravind provided Paul with the opportunity to break free from this alliance and he did not hesitate a second to take his chance.  But that was a very lame excuse from Paul to distance himself and the MMM party from the MSM party. The population is no fool, an alliance with the PTR is on the cards now.  We can say that Paul bit to the hooks of the Electoral Reform that Navin offered to him.

What type of politicians and politics?

The language and actions of some politicians say a lot about the quality of our politicians and by extension our democracy.

Politics and Economy

While politicians are impatiently awaiting the publication of the “White Paper” on electoral reforms, economists on the other hand are closely monitoring figures and remain suspended to the lips of decision makers. However, on this side, it’s a ‘pass the buck’ attitude as well.
