Findings from Afrobarometer Round 7 survey in Mauritius in 2018.

At a glance:

  • Overwhelming preference for democracy: About three-fourths of Mauritians prefer democracy over any other system, consider multiparty competition necessary to give voters a real choice.
  • Views on political class and accountability: Seven in 10 favour a two-term limit for the prime minister. Almost as many say it’s more important for the government to be accountable than to be efficient.
  • Most important problems: More than two-thirds of Mauritians cite unemployment as the most important problem that the government should address.
