The Electoral Commission has announced several changes that will come into effect during the upcoming presidential election from the 3rd to 5th December.

The Chief Electoral Officer, Charles Morin presented the amendments during a Press Conference on Thursday 26th November.

He explained that voters will be required to dip the index finger of their left hand in ink, covering the finger up to the nail. This practice will differ from previous elections whereby the ink was applied to the tip of the nail of the thumb.

With regards to identification documents, Mr. Morin said voters should bring along their identity cards or their passports to the polling station. He added that those without such documents will still be eligible to vote provided that several people present at the polling station can identify them.


The Fair Trading Commission is drafting a National Consumer Policy with the assistance of the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa.

Seychelles already has a National Competition Policy but lacks a National Consumer Policy as per international best practice.

The Chief Executive Officer of FTC, Georges Tirant explained that a National Consumer Policy will enable the Fair Trading Commission to better coordinate with stakeholders when dealing with issues affecting consumers.

“To have a national consumer policy guiding how we protect consumers from goods and services in Seychelles that they are acquiring; goods and services outside Seychelles; but mainly goods coming in from outside and also look at market problems”, said Mr. Tirant.

COMESA has recruited the services of Seychellois lawyer, Ranjan Dhanjee, who has amassed 30 years of experience working with the United Conference on Trade and Development in Geneva to draft the policy and devise an accompanying code of conduct.

Ces différentes familles ont pourtant en commun un morceau de terre. En raison de nombreux conflits antérieurs, les familles ont du mal à instaurer cohésion et confiances entre elles, mais elles restent liées par: le « DINALEDI LODGE ».

Seychelles has reiterated its call for a vulnerability index for Small Island Developing States at the second session of the ACP council of minister in Brussels.

Seychelles was represented at the ACP Ministerial development finance meeting by Secretary of State, Barry Faure who was representing the minister for foreign affairs, Joel Morgan.

Ambassador Faure said single and indiscriminate use of GDP per capita when it comes to development assistance works against SIDS and small vulnerable economies. He said the practice has to be abandoned and called for the interest of SIDS and small vulnerable economies to be seriously considered in post 2020 ACP-EU partnership.

President James Michel first made the call at third UN international SIDS conference in Samoa last year. It is thus a key foreign policy agenda for the government of Seychelles.
