Mauritius: Paul Bérenger, leader of the MMM claims of wanting to resign from his position as leader of the opposition

While an electoral agreement is expected to be permanently sealed this weekend between the labour party in power since 2005 and the Mouvement Militant Mauricien (MMM) , Paul Bérenger the current leader of the parliamentary opposition has recently stated wishing to resign from his post while remaining Member on the benches of the National Assembly until the dissolution of the latter in the wake of elections before the end of the year 2014.
"As soon as the agreement is ratified by the Assembly of delegates of the MMM, I will resign from my post of leader of the opposition", has put forward the leader of Mouvement Militant Mauricien whose effective resignation could take place from mid-September.
If this option is confirmed in the coming days, the position of leader of the parliamentary opposition should return to Pravind Jugnauth whose party Mouvement Socialiste Militant (MSM) holds the largest number of opposition MPs in the Chamber after the MMM, as indicated in the  Le Défi Quotidien newspaper.
In this political scheme that is looming on the horizon and the holding of early elections, the resumption of parliamentary proceedings October 7 might not happen...
