Mrinal Roy: The PM’s post cannot be bartered. Nor is it is a family heirloom that can be bequeathed

Put simply, democratic practices prevailing in Mauritius are aeons distanced from those of the best democracies of the world such as the United Kingdom. The 70 MPs of the National Assembly are elected by the people to serve them strictly in accordance to the brief given to them. A handful of them even if they hold the majority cannot usurp the people’s paramount right and power to choose who they decide should head the government. This choice belongs solely and exclusively to the people.
