New Mauritian Government: The Hon Pravind Kumar JUGNAUTH (December 2019)

General elections were held in Mauritius on 7 November 2019. The result was a victory for the Mauritian Alliance (a coalition of the Militant Socialist Movement (MSM), Muvman Liberater, Alan Ganoo Movement and Plateforme Militante), which won 42 of the 70 seats. Pravind Jugnauth of the MSM remained Prime Minister.

Electoral system

The National Assembly has 62 elected members elected in 20 three-seat constituencies and one two-seat constituency (the island of Rodrigues). The elections are held using the block vote system, whereby voters have as many votes as there are seats available. In addition to the elected members, the Electoral Supervisory Commission has the power to appoint a further eight members. The additional members are chosen from amongst the unsuccessful candidates who received the highest number of votes, and are appointed with the aim of balancing the parliamentary representation of different ethnic groups.


The ruling Militant Socialist Movement (MSM) won over half of the seats in Parliament, meaning incumbent Prime Minister Pravind Jugnauth, who took over from his father Anerood Jugnauth in 2017, will serve a full five-year term as Prime Minister.

Of the 62 directly-elected seats, the MSM won 38, the Labour Party won 14, the Mauritian Militant movement (MMM) won 8, and the Rodrigues People's Organisation (OPR) won 2 seats from the island of Rodrigues.

Mauritian Government: Sir. Anerood Jugnauth (December 2014)

General elections were held in Mauritius on 10 December 2014 and resulted in a victory for the Alliance Lepep coalition, which secured 47 of the elected seats under the leadership of Sir Anerood Jugnauth, while the PTR–MMM alliance under Navin Ramgoolam only got 13 seats.

Prime Minister Navin Rangoolam lost his own seat and accepted defeat after voters rejected his proposals to boost presidential powers. Former president and Alliance Lepep leader, 84-year-old Sir Anerood Jugnauth became prime minister in the Indian Ocean island nation. Alliance Lepep is a coalition led by the Mouvement Socialiste Militant (MSM) with other parties including the Parti Mauricien Social Démocrate (PMSD) and the Muvman Liberater (ML).

Mauritian Government: Dr. Navinchandra Ramgoolam (July 3, 2005)

After the election held in the Republic of Mauritius, July 3rd, 2005, the Alliance Sociale was swept into power with a 53.57 percent of votes cast to take all 60 parliamentary seats on the island. The turnout was 81.52 percent. The ousted government coalition of Paul Raymond BERENGER (MSM/MMM) won just 41.7 percent of the votes only.
