Arvin Boolell and the Labour parliamentary group faced the press this morning. The Labour MP for constituency no 18 commented at length on the SIM card re-registration exercise. For him, there is something fishy going on. He said he was surprised that the exercise would end on 30 April, the day before 1 May. For Arvin Boolell, it is possible that, with the information and data that each SIM card holder will have to provide as part of the re-registration exercise, there could be tampering during the next elections. “Tampering will become very easy, thanks in particular to artificial intelligence,” he said. Arvin Boolell said he had confidence in the Electoral Commission and the Electoral Commissioner. “He must inform himself and make inquiries,” he said. He affirmed that, of course, it is the Prime Minister who decides the date of the elections. But the way things are going, he said, “it is clear that the elections will take place before the end of October”.
He believes that “there is chaos and decadence within the MSM”. The chill between Environment Minister Kavi Ramano and MP Tania Diolle, both elected at No. 18, was raised by the Labour MP, who went on to talk about a possible deterioration in relations between Alan Ganoo’s Patriotic Movement and Pravind Jugnauth’s MSM.
