Pursuant to the meeting dated 19 November 2021, the Cabinet has agreed to the introduction of the Revision of Laws (Amendment) Bill (the Bill) into the Mauritius National Assembly. The main object of the Bill is to enable all revised editions of acts of parliament, including any regulation thereof, to be published online through the Attorney General’s Office portal. The electronic revised edition will be free of charge and any user will not only be able to view the revised laws of Mauritius, but also print a copy thereof. Thereafter, such electronic revised editions shall be regarded as equivalent to the official text of the enactments so published and be taken to be the laws of Mauritius.

This is a welcome initiative because the state plays a defining role in encouraging digital innovation and incentivising the development of technologies for the benefit of society. If the Bill is passed, it will be an innovative way to further promote social distancing measures in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, as the electronic revised editions will be widely accessible online from the comfort of one’s own home and office.
