Indian delegation finds Mauritius Parl systems interesting
New Delhi: The "Best Loser System" being
practised in the National Assembly of Mauritius was found
interesting by an Indian Parliamentary delegation led by Lok
Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar on Wednesday.
The system provides for representation of four members
from minority communities and an equal number on party-cum-
community basis in the Assembly if they polled the highest
percentage of votes but nevertheless lost the elections.
The delegation which is currently on a visit to Mauritius
had discussions with Assembly Speaker Rajkeswur Purryag on the
Parliamentary democracy in the two countries both of which
follow the Westminster model.
The Indian delegation found it interesting that there was
no committee system in the National Assembly and all aspects
of the budget is debated, a Lok Sabha release said here.
Kumar welcomed a suggestion that an India-Mauritius
Friendship Group be constituted as early as possible.
