Mauritius To Vote For New Government on May 5

That's what the Prime Minister announced a few minutes ago on the MBC after telling the nation that he had dissolved Parliament this afternoon. With this announcement, Mauritius is now thrown into a short 35-day election campaign. 

Ramgoolam's announcement comes 1,732 days after winning the July 2005 polls. His first dissolution of Parliament happened 1,696 days after he had won the December 20, 1995 elections while the 2000 campaign was only 31 days long.
