Politics

Since March 12, 1992, Mauritius has been a parliamentary republic within the Commonwealth. The constitution of August 12, 1967, supplemented by the independence decision of March 12, 1968 (Mauritius Independence Order), which has since been revised several times, applies. Head of State and Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces is the President of the Republic, elected by Parliament for 5 years. He appoints the prime minister, can dissolve parliament and declare a state of emergency. The cabinet is responsible to parliament. The legislative body is the National Assembly, a unicameral parliament with a legislative period of 5 years. Of the maximum of 70 MPs, 62 are directly elected by majority voting (voting rights from the age of 18) and up to 8 are appointed (appointed from the ranks of unsuccessful candidates, taking ethnic minorities into account). There are also the speaker of parliament and the attorney general. The island of Rodriguez, with Francophone residents predominantly of African descent, has had extended autonomy rights since 2002 (its own regional parliament and its own regional government) and sends 2 members to the National Assembly.

National symbols

The national flag was first hoisted on Independence Day. It is divided into four horizontal stripes evenly in red, blue, yellow and green. The colors were taken from the coat of arms.

The coat of arms was adopted on August 25, 1905 by the British King Edward VIII. awarded and adopted unchanged upon independence. In the first field of the blue and gold quartered shield, it shows a golden sailing ship that is reminiscent of the first settlers. The green palm trees in the second field – two above, one below – represent the flora. The red key in the third field symbolizes the strategic location, together with the silver tip, elevated by a five-pointed silver star in the fourth field and the motto “Stella Clavisque Maris Indici” (star and key of the Indian Sea) on the silver band under the coat of arms. Heraldic shield holders are a dronte on the right and a sambar deer on the left, each holding a sugar cane stalk. The silver belly of the shield holder is separated from the red back by a pewter cut.

The national holiday is March 12th. It commemorates the achievement of independence in 1968. Check ask4beauty to see Mauritius the Pearl of the Indian Ocean.

Mauritius does not have its own armed forces; Great Britain will defend the island state in the event of a conflict. Paramilitary groups are available with around 2,000 men. A Special Mobile Force (SMF) with around 1,400 men corresponds to the army. The surveillance of the maritime economic zone is ensured by coastal surveillance aircraft and 21 coastal protection ships. The Indian Navy supports Mauritius in training and maintenance.

Administration

The main island of Mauritius is divided into 9 districts and 5 municipalities. The island of Rodriguez and the Cargados-Carajos and Agalega islands have no subordinate administrative units.

Law

Jurisdiction is exercised at the lower level by District Courts, at the middle level by the Intermediate Court and Industrial Court, and at the upper level by the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court, with extensive first and second instance jurisdiction, also decides on the interpretation of the constitution and the nullity of unconstitutional laws. In certain cases the Privy Council in London can also be called.

The civil law, which is based on the French Code civil ( Code ) and English Common Law, as well as the Commercial Code, which follows the French “Code de Commerce”, have often been amended and supplemented. The procedural law is largely based on the English legal tradition.
