And miles to go before...

Written by
The countdown has begun; three days are left for the Nomination day and nineteen days until the election. The week has been full of action after the proclamation of names of candidates for both Alliance PTr/MMM and Alliance Lepep. 
L’Alliance Lepep has chosen Mrs Ameenah Gurib-Fakim as future President of the Republic of Mauritius after the polls of 10 December if it is elected to govern the country. This choice comes as a pleasing note in the big hubbub of political campaigns as the incumbent is a most respected personality, a great intellectual and researcher, and at the same time it is a compliment to the women folk who represent more than 55% of voters. News on Sunday presents the President-to-be to its readers and asks her what it means to her to suddenly become the head of state.
