Mauritius: Sales of secondhand vehicles on the island decreasing with the upcoming elections

Professionals who import cars in Mauritius expect a sharp decline in sales of secondhand vehicles for the end of year 2014.
For Zaid Ameer, president of the association of vehicle importers, the last months of the year usually display a hundred cars sold weekly on the second hand market, while today 20-30 sales are made.
For its part, the public agency of the National Transport Authority announced that 5,688 cars were sold within the first ten of the year 2014, as indicated by the Le Défi Quotidien newspaper.
The proximity of the early legislative elections scheduled on December 10 might have had a boomerang influence on possible buyers most concerned for the time to be determined politically and pending incentive measures following the elections of the new governmental majority in power.
* Reconditioned cars, mostly Japanese brand imported second hand
