Political Dissidence in the Labour Party : Is the birth of a separate new Labour Party under discussion
Something is definitely cooking in the labour political pot for the past few months. The source of my information I received could be regarded worth mentioning as potential breaking news in the near future. There have been several private and secret committees by political activists and politicians on a new political strategy for new members of the labour party to do a reflection as to whether or not there should be a drastic change in the Ramgoolam’s old guard Labour party. Certain strategists in the labour party want to get rid of the old guards and bring forward a new born labour party under a new leader.
All the signs and symptoms of such political changing strategy about the formation or creation of a new Labour party without Navin Ramgoolam and certain of his old guards are there to see as an indication to modernize the whole structure of the Labour party.
First we have the leader of the Labour party, Dr Navin Ramgoolam who has stated in the press that as long as he is here, there won’t be a second Labour party. Could this statement of Ramgoolam be a warning to Labour MP Shakeel Mohamed who has said in a press interview of his aspiration of becoming a political leader himself. Is this a challenge or a mere aspiration of Mr Shakeel Mohamed for showing his political ambition which is his lawful right as an individual. Mr Shakeel Mohamed has stated in his press interview in LE DIMANCHE-L’HEBDO dated the 23rd April 2017 and I quote his words : “ Dans quelque années, si Dieu le veut et si j’ai le soutien de la population et du parti, pourquoi pas aspirer a être le numero un.”
Perhaps Navin Ramgoolam does not like such a challenge coming from his own member of his party. We also note that all elected members of the Labour party were absent at the Labour party meeting of Ramgoolam and his old guards last week at Vallée Pitot
The eggs are on the way to be hatched. So it is a question of time as something is cooking in the political pot of the Labour PARTY.
