Reactions on Electoral Reform: "A Great Step Forward"
How this presentation electoral reform yesterday, Monday, March 24 , the Prime Minister is it received? If Ashok Subron of Rezistans ek Alternativ already claiming victory, others commenting hot considers several aspects including the future of the Best Loser System remain unclear.
While the side of the opposition, mum's the word. Requested by the express , the leader of the MMM, Paul Bérenger, said "he did not want to comment" . Same story on the side of Jugnauth, who did understand, after the regional conference held in Vacoas, he would study the document "before issuing an opinion" .
Ashok Subron stresses him that "the speech Ramgoolam, with the position of Bérenger and Remake, there is a consensus that there is no question of returning to the municipal census population for political purposes . " What makes me say Yusuf Mohamed, with a hint of bitterness, that "from what the Prime Minister said, the decision is taken. The Best Loser System will be abolished. He says he will integrate the system but at the same time he says he no longer wants this system. It is clear, if there is no population census, the Best Loser System disappears. For me, this formula is a farewell to the promise made ??to the Muslim Action Committee at the time of independence. In addition, there is every reason to believe that the MMM will get rid of the MSM. "
Rashid Imrith, union, for its part, notes that the great debate is still the Best Loser System. What is crucial now, also tells me Ivan Collendavelloo is now see the method to be adopted to count the votes for each party. "Prime Minister has been very clear on that."
The union Jack Bizlall, also believes that shadows remain. "intervention Ramgoolam is confused. There are many extrapolations. Without reading the document, it does not capture the composition in detail. " However, the union recognizes that with the Best Loser System integrated element of ethnic statement disappears. And "this is a step forward" .
Pierre Dinan, Economist, reacts him on the fact that the reform proposes that a party may not be eligible for the list PR seats without at least 10% of the vote. "This will condemn the smaller parties like the MSM and the PMSD to make alliances. I preferred 5%. The system just freeze the bipolar system already in place. The PM also said that citizens are involved in thinking, but it does not offer a referendum. When eventually the project will be submitted to Parliament, there is a risk that the government and the opposition are judge and jury. "
