The President of the Republic of Seychelles, Mr. James Michel and the Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly, Mr. David Pierre met on Thursday to discuss pertinent issues in the country.

During the meeting, Mr. Pierre expressed his concern about the decreasing value of the country’s currency. He pointed out that this decrease is leading to a rise in prices of commodities in shops affecting mostly lower income workers. He said that the government should do everything in its power to stabilise the currency and encourage foreign direct investment.

The Leader of the Opposition also raised the issue of renewable energy in which he said 70% of the country’s foreign exchange is being used to buy fuel to produce energy. Mr. Pierre said this is too high. He proposed that the government invest in electronic appliances that use less energy. He also stressed on the importance on educating the public on the importance of energy conservation.

President Michel and Mr. Pierre hold such discussions on a monthly basis.


The National Assembly has once again supported the calls for more intensive fights against corruption in the country.

The members of the National Assembly voted in favour of a motion by the Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly, David Pierre calling for the government to introduce a more comprehensive law against corruption which will incorporate an Anti-Corruption Commission.

The Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly acknowledged there are a number of institutions and agencies mandated to combat corruption not only in the public but in the private sector. The proper spending of tax payers money and enforcement of anti-corruption laws are regulated by the Procurement Act; the Public Service Ethics Commission and they are monitored by the National Assembly’s Finance and Public Accounts Committee; the Auditor General, the Financial Investigation Unit and the Ministry of Finance.

Presenting his motion, Mr. Pierre said these are not enough as Seychelles is still ranked 47th on transparency international’s perception of Corruption Index. He therefore suggested that the government introduce a new law which is more comprehensive and which will be spearheaded by an Anti-Corruption Commission.

He said that the commission will take preventive measures to suppress and eliminate corruption. It will protect whistle blowers who come forward in instances of corruption, it will carry out investigations and seek court orders to seize the assets of those accused of corruption. Mr. Pierre says such a commission will restore the confidence of good governance in Seychelles.

The 4 members of the National Assembly who intervened on the motion called the harmonizing resources to create a clear updated picture of what Seychelles is doing to fulfil its obligations under the African convention it ratified in 2005 where it committed a number of anti corruption institutions.
