Indian-origin Ramkalawan is elected Seychelles prez

Victoria (Seychelles):

The Seychelles elected an opposition candidate as president for the first time since 1977, authorities announced on Sunday, and winner, Indian-origin Wavel Ramkalawan, reaffirmed a pledge to hike the minimum wage after Covid-19 stifled the tourism-dependent economy. Seychelles State House said in a statement on its website that Ramkalawan and his vice-president Ahmed Afif would be inaugurated on Monday.

Ramkalawan, a former Anglican priest, defeated President Danny Faure after three decades of unsuccessful runs for the presidency of the East African nation. Ramkalawan captured 54.9% of the vote while Faure got 43.5% in the vote held from Thursday through Saturday, the electoral commission announced. AGENCIES
