Supreme Court strikes off Ramgoolam's electoral petition

The electoral petition of former PM Navin Ramgoolam was struck off in the Supreme Court on Monday, October 10. On October 6, the latter had decided, after three years, to withdraw his electoral petition in No. 10 (Montagne Blanche/GRSE).

Ramgoolam was challenging the election of the three elected members of the MSM-led Alliance Morisien in the constituency No. 10, namely ministers Sunil Bholah, Vikram Hurdoyal and Deputy Speaker Zahid Nazurally.

Ivan Collendavelloo, Senior Counsel, who represents the elected candidates in No. 10, reacted by saying that this electoral petition was a “scam”.

“The MMM and the Labour party held this country as hostage and made the population believe that the elections were rigged. We know that this was never the case,” he claimed.

Navin Ramgoolam’s lawyer, Mr. Gavin Clover, did not elaborate on the case.

“Navin Ramgoolam has given the explanation behind the decision. I have nothing to add. I am only the lawyer in the case,” he said.
