Public trust in institutions, satisfaction with democracy decline in Mauritius

6 Feb 2018 Mauritius
Findings from Afrobarometer Round 7 survey in Mauritius.

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.
