Financement des partis politiques: Business Mauritius invite ses membres à faire preuve de transparence

Se référer aux directives stipulées dans le manuel «Reporting with Integrity» en conformité avec le National Code of Corporate Governance for Mauritius.

C’est ce à quoi Raj Makood, Chief Executive Officer de Business Mauritius, appelle ses membres à respecter en ce qui concerne le financement des partis politiques en vue de la prochaine élection partielle du 17 décembre 2017 dans la circonscription n°18.

Les directives stipulent qu’il est de la responsabilité du Conseil de décider si l’organisation doit faire des dons à des partis politiques.

Et d’ajouter que si les administrateurs décident qu’il est approprié de fournir des fonds à des partis politiques ou à un candidat indépendant, la somme fournie doit impérativement figurer dans le rapport annuel. Et que le Conseil doit fournir des explications exactes et détaillées sur la manière dont les fonds auraient été utilisés.

By-election to be held on December 17, 2017


 – Funding of Political Parties

In the context of the forthcoming by-election to be held on December 17, 2017, Business Mauritius invites its members to take cognizance of the contents of the Implementation Guidance on “Reporting with Integrity” of the National Code of Corporate Governance for Mauritius (2016) which came into effect on December 3, 2016 pursuant to GN 1804.

The Implementation Guidance with respect to Reporting with Integrity (Principle 6) states that:

“It is the responsibility of the Board to decide whether the organisation should make donations to charities, political parties or other causes.  Any donations or funding should be within the law and in the interests of the organisation.  A donation includes gifts of money or other property, any sponsorship, membership subscription or fee, the payment of expenses; and the provision of services, facilities or loans other than on commercial terms.  Political contributions include any expenditure incurred by the organisation for the preparation and distribution of publicity material for any political party or organisation or independent candidate or for any other activities that could reasonably be regarded as intended to affect public support for a political party or organisation or independent candidate.

If the Directors decide that it is appropriate to provide funds for charitable or political parties or causes, then that contribution should be declared in the annual report.  Boards are encouraged to provide details of each contribution”.

In furtherance of the commitment of the business community to enhance transparency, BM invites all companies, deciding to fund any political party to comply with the Implementation Guidance on “Reporting with Integrity”, (Principle 6) of the National Code of Corporate Governance for Mauritius (2016).

Kind regards

Raj Makoond
Chief Executive Officer
