Mauritius government faces no-confidence vote
10 May 2022
The parliament in Mauritius will on Tuesday debate a motion of no confidence filed against the government by the leader of the opposition Xavier-Luc Duval.
The motion follows last month’s protests against high prices of foodstuffs, public transport, petroleum products and cooking gas.
Mr Duval also wants the government to reverse some of its “unhealthy policies” and take urgent measures to improve the wellbeing of citizens.
The no-confidence motion is the first in 26 years.
Debate is expected to be held until late on Tuesday night as it is expected to last for 10 hours and 30 minutes.
