More about Mauritania
- REMZFAMILY: Modern history of Mauritania from World War I to today, covering all major events on politics, economy, society, and technology.
According to the constitution adopted by referendum on July 12, 1991 (revised by referendum on June 25, 2006), Mauritania is a presidential republic. The constitution, which declares Mauritania an Islamic, indivisible, democratic and social state, enshrines the separation of powers and party pluralism. Islam is the state religion and Sharia Basis of case law. The President, directly elected for a period of five years (his term of office was limited to two terms), acts as head of state and commander-in-chief of the armed forces; it has extensive powers, appoints the prime minister and can dissolve parliament and impose a state of emergency. The legislature lies with the bicameral parliament, consisting of the National Assembly (147 members, elected for 5 years) and the Senate (54 members, who are elected for 6 years by the municipal councils and 3 co-opted members). Senate elections take place every two years for a third of the members. In another constitutional referendum on August 5, 2017, the population voted for the dissolution of the Senate.
The national flag, anchored in the constitution of March 22, 1959, shows the rising yellow crescent moon with the five-pointed star in the middle of the green cloth. The flag symbolizes Islam in the Sunni direction. With the constitutional amendment of 2017, the flag was given a red stripe at the top and bottom to commemorate the willingness of the population to shed their own blood for the independence and territorial integrity of the country.
Instead of a coat of arms, Mauritania has a state seal, which was established in the law of August 3, 1960. It shows a five-pointed star and a crescent moon below it. In front of it are a date palm and two millet cuttings. On the edge is the official name of the state in French and Arabic.
The national holiday is November 28th, it commemorates the gaining of independence in 1960.
In the course of the political upheavals of recent years, there have also been changes in the party landscape. The leading party political force is the ruling Union pour la République (UPR; founded in 2009). The Union pour la Démocratie et le Progrès (UDP; founded 1993) also belongs to the government camp. Opposition parties include the moderate Islamist group Rassemblement National pour le Renouveau et la Démocratie-Tawassoul (RNRD-Tawassoul; registered 2007), the Parti de l’Entente Démocratique et Sociale-El Wiam (PEDS-El Wiam; founded 2010), the Alliance Populaire Progressiste (APP; founded 1991) and the Rassemblement des Forces Démocratiques (RFD; founded 1991). In exile, the Forces de Liberation Africaine de Mauritanie (FLAM) acts as a representative of the black African population.
In addition to the state-controlled Union des Travailleurs de Mauritanie (UTM), there have been, inter alia, since 1994. the independent Confédération Générale des Travailleurs de Mauritanie (CGTM) and the Confédération Libre des Travailleurs de Mauritanie (CLTM, affiliated to the UFP).
