Meetings, conferences, political meetings, the ears of the NSS are everywhere and inform the police authorities of the electoral atmosphere and first tendencies which takes place in the 20 circumscriptions of the island, as reported by the Le Défi Quotidien newspaper.
In the biggest discretion, agents and informers locally called “corbeaux” are at the heart of the electoral fever to rise in the corridor of power of the actual state of the Mauritian opinions and electors who are shortly going to vote between early November and beginning of March 2015.

The National Security Service subsequently submit a detailed report of their observations which after an evaluation conducted by officers of process and analysis within the general police quarter will be sent directly at the Prime minister’s office.
