The executive committee of the Labour Party has been rejuvenated by 55%. This is what the president of the PTr’s youth wing said at a press conference on Wednesday afternoon. For Fabrice David, the rejuvenation is at the centre of the policy of the Labour Party. He added that 220 of the 400 members of the executive committee are aged between 18 and 35 years old. Moreover, out of the 40 members of the political bureau, 25 new members are from the new generation of politicians, explains the president of the young wing. Fabrice David added that he is pleased to see the oldest party in the country renew its authorities and young people in positions of responsibility.
120 new young people have joined the party’s executive committee, which is a sign of “rejuvenation, rupture and reform”, coinciding with the vision of the party leader, Navin Ramgoolam.
The Young Labour Mauritius has, to date, nearly 1,200 young people with a membership application “of 10% every day”, according to Fabrice David. Aged between 18 and 24, Mauritian youth will constitute 270,000 voters in the next legislative elections, said Fabrice David.
