14 observers from African countries making up the African Union Observation Mission are in Seychelles to monitor the electoral process of the upcoming presidential election.

While in Seychelles, the observers took part in a 2-day session to acquaint them with the entire electoral process of the island state.

Speaking about the purpose of the training for the observers who arrived in Seychelles on the 26th November, the Mission Coordinator, Guy Tapokog said very important to make sure that the observers cope with all the information in the country to be able to make a good observation on the Election Day.

“The first thing is to make them understand the political environment; the electoral environment; the security environment; most important the legal framework of the country going into the election. Other aspects, the code of conduct and also something very important, the deployment.”

Presidential election in Seychelles will take place from the 3rd to 5th December.


“Countless research and financial reports of other countries have stipulated that education is a costly business”, said the Chief Executive Officer of the Institute for Early Childhood Development, Shirley Choppy.

To assist the institution with meeting such high costs, 5 private companies have committed to support the National Action Plan for Early Childhood Care and Education. 
A ceremony was organised to sign the agreements thus formalising the support.

The National Action Plan for Early Childhood Care and Education aims at bringing together different sectors to promote good practices influencing the development of children in the country through different projects covering different sectors to the early childhood care and education. It covers 13 different projects expected to amount to Rs. 11 million.

The Chief Executive Officer of the Institute for Early Childhood Development says that this is the second action plan implemented by the institute. Drawing lessons from the previous action plan, Mrs. Choppy said, “Experience from the previous action plan on ECCE 2013/2014 has shown that there was a lack of financial resources to implement all the projects. Although we were a bit ambitious on our part to implement all the projects in 2 years.”

There are a number of projects targeting early childhood care and education being implemented In Seychelles with some in their proposal stages.

The Meteorological Services has affirmed that the El Nino phenomenon does not pose a direct threat to Seychelles.

'El Nino' is triggered every two to seven years, by the warming in sea surface temperatures in the Pacific Ocean. This year it has been blamed for unusually heavy rains in some parts of the world and drought elsewhere.

Giving an update of the situation locally, Senior Meterologist, Gerard Bijoux, said although to a lesser extent, Seychelles has also been experiencing the impact of El nino. “For the past few months, let’s say in August our maximum has been up to 298.3 millimetres compared to 108 millimetres. In September, our normal is 153.8 mm but in September we had 254.9 mm and for November we had 376mm. the accumulation has been way above the normal for each month.”

The heavy rainfall Seychelles experienced in early October was a result of the tropical depression Annabelle which had formed over the western Indian Ocean. The country was already under the influence of the El nino phenomenon which was already impacting on Seychelles since August.

The World Meteorological Organisation has been warning countries across the globe, of a strong and mature El Niño, which continues, in the tropical Pacific Ocean.
