Independent MP, Hon. Kavi Ramano, representing constituency number 18 (Belle Rose and Quatre Bornes), will ask about the Freedom of Information Bill during tomorrow’s parliamentary sitting. The question1 B/723 will be directed to the Hon. Prime Minister, P.K. Jugnauth. He will be asked whether he can communicate an expected date for the introduction to the bill to the house.

The current government promised a Freedom of Information Act in their manifesto2 during the general elections of 2014. It’s been more than a thousand days since that promise and there is still no word from the government about a Freedom of Information Bill.

Effective communication was also listed as priority number two in the manifesto3 of the ruling party during the municipal elections of 2015. However, there are very dim chances of obtaining a law that guarantees the citizen a right to information before the end of this government’s mandate.
