Pressure grows against nomination of political cronies

Published

on

The Leader of the Opposition, Xavier Duval, has reiterated his objection and condemnation against the proposed appointment of alleged MSM cronies (Mrs Shadmeenee Mootien and Mr Yashvirsingh Roopun) as board members of the Electoral Supervisory Commission (ESC) and the Electoral Boundaries Commission (EBC).

Duval criticized the names proposed by the President of the Republic, Pradeep Roopun, as being a “killing of democracy.”

“The appointment of people close to the MSM within these institutions, which ensure impartial holding of elections is a serious attack on democracy,” he said. “We are against these appointments. People of Mauritius need to react.” Duval reportedly sent a “stern” letter to President Roopun.

A lawsuit before the Supreme Court is also being considered to contest the nominations if the President Roopun gives his go-ahead.
