In line with the Medpoint chronicle which the leader of the Opposition, Paul Bérenger, has described as ‘the scandal of the century’, all attention is focused on.
Prime Minister Navin Ramgoolam’s arrival from London on Monday, which is expected to be the dénouement in this affair.
He is awaited aboard flight MK 053 from Heathrow Airport, scheduled to land at 7.55 am.
Meanwhile, speculations and silence are the order of the day. Will Ramgoolam repudiate the outgoing ministers, and consequently, the MSM, or give L’Alliance de
l’Avenir a second chance? Is he considering forging an alliance with the MMM?
According to a central committee member of the MSM who prefers anonymity, the PM has assured Pravind Jugnauth that he will be reintegrating all the six ministers who resigned last Tuesday.
The MSM Leader Pravind Jugnauth is having a working session with a few of its members at 11 am at the Sun Trust Building, Port Louis before meeting with Ramgoolam on Monday itself.
On the MMM front, member of central committee Anil Seeruttun has decided to adopt the same line as their leader, namely evasive silence.
He however stated that “the situation is serious. The PM can either revoke all the MSM members or grant them all pardon, but the Labour Party is definitely in
a tricky situation.”
Speaking on whether the MMM leader is planning to meet with the PM or hold an emergency press conference, he stated that it all depends on the stance that
Ramgoolam will take.
For Satish Seebun, ex secretary of the MSM, the PM will conserve the majority, no matter the outcome.
“The public had voted the Alliance de l’Avenir.
Nothing will change. I am confident that Ramgoolam will take the best decision in the country’s interest,” stated Seebun adding that he believes fully in the Independent Commission Against Corruption’s autonomy.
“Of the six MSM ministers, only Hanoomanjee’s resignation is justified,” he said.
