Former MP Ezra Jhuboo has slammed the door on the Labour Party, one of the leading opposition parties in Mauritius. He reportedly submitted his resignation letter this Friday, September 16.
“I gave an interview in the press in 2017 asking for a reinvention of the Labour Party, and in the light of the renewal of the politburo I am afraid that my appeal for a transformation of the party was in vain,” he was cited as writing.
Only a few days earlier, Labour had presented a revamped structure and politburo. He was not given any party responsibilities.
Jhuboo was elected in constituency No. 14 (Savanne-Rivière-Noire) in 2010. However, he was defeated in 2014.
His resignation comes days after that of Kalyanee Juggoo, who had been the party’s secretary general for 13 years.
