The penultimate speaker was MMM leader Paul Bérenger, who urged the Mauritian people to : “Remain vigilant. There will be all kinds of electoral shenanigans”.

Paul Bérenger also spoke about the list of candidates, pointing out that “not everyone will be able to get a ticket. We ask those who will be deprived to understand that we can only grant 60 nominations”. He also asked supporters not to believe everything written in the newspapers.

Paul Berenger believes that “there will be other political developments in the future. We will win and Navin Ramgoolam will be Prime Minister. Whatever happens, it will be a Labour Prime Minister… That’s a commitment. We need a ¾ majority to implement our program and to amend the Constitution”.  The ultimate mission of the PTr/MMM/ND alliance will be to save the country from Pravind Jugnauth, and on November 21, when Parliament is automatically dissolved, the people will have to make a decision.
