As Mauritius gears up for the parliamentary return on March 26th, opposition MPs continue to face dismissals of their inquiries.

Following the rejection of a question posed by MP Ehsan Juman regarding the dismissal of Vikram Hurdoyal as a minister, another setback hit the opposition ranks. This time, it was the turn of the MP representing constituency number 18 (Belle-Rose/Quatre-Bornes) to face a similar fate.

Arvin Boolell, the leader of the Labour Party (PTr), sought clarification on whether the President of the Republic had intervened in the constitutional conflict between the Director of Public Prosecutions, Rashid Ahmine, and the Commissioner of Police, Anil Kumar Dip.

Boolell expressed his dismay, stating, “I haven’t received any explanation for this rejection. I posed this question because the President of the Republic is the guardian of the Constitution, and in times of such crisis, it is his duty to intervene to restore calm.”

Political observers view these rejections as a form of censorship on the eve of the parliamentary return, where tensions between the government and the opposition, as well as with the Speaker of the National Assembly, are expected to run high once again.

As for the agenda on Tuesday, March 26th, Ariane Navarre Marie, a member of the Mauritian Militant Movement (MMM), will kick off the Prime Minister’s Question Time with an inquiry into the introduction of the Creole language in the National Assembly.

Rajesh Bhagwan (MMM), will seek answers from the Minister of Finance, Renganaden Padayachy, regarding the security measures for various stakeholders during the opening of the horse racing season, querying whether an audit has been conducted in this regard.

Within the PTr, MP Farhad Aumeer will press the Minister of Health, Kailesh Jagutpal, for updates on the dengue situation in Mauritius. He will also inquire about the availability of equipment and trained personnel for dengue eradication efforts.

Meanwhile, PTr MP Patrick Assirvaden will revisit the CorexSolar case, directing questions to the Minister of Public Utilities, Joe Lesjongard, regarding the legal expenses incurred in the matter.
