On Monday when the freshly elected MPs took the oath, the ceremony took a historic dimension for various reasons. First, Sir Anerood Jugnauth, who is the new Leader of the House will go down history as being one of the very rare politicians to serve as Prime Minister after having been the President of the Republic.

Decisive phase for the electoral campaign

The beginning of this week was marked by the Nomination Day held on Monday. As many as 739 candidates filed in their nomination papers for the 62 seats at the National Assembly. Participation of women in this exercise reached 17,32%, still very far from the SADC target of 30% of women participation in national elections.

The stand of the government regarding the role of Parliamentary Private Secretaries is still unclear in the wake of the dissolution of the National Assembly as from 6 October last. Can they still benefit from their salaries and other privileges including use of their offices at the National Development Unit (NDU), protection by officers of VIPSU and use of government vehicles?

Setting the stage for general elections

So, the stage is set for general elections. The return of the Prime Minister Dr Navin Ramgoolam to the country during the week-end should make things clearer in terms of political agenda. It is very likely that the National Assembly will be dissolved either on Sunday or on Monday.

Perception

If Mauritius was not basically a democracy, people would have probably resorted to other means, less peaceful maybe, to make their political leaders become more reasonable. However, the actions of the latter are no longer a laughing matter. Their modus operandi is just disgusting.
