MU Parliament



Introduction

The "National Assembly" is the unicameral parliament of Mauritius. It consists of 62 elected and 7 additional appointed members, known as "best losers" to ensure minority equal representation. The new building, with its modular elements, is related to Brutalist architecture. The front shows the Coat of Arms including the Dodo-bird that, endemic to the island, is famous for his extinction.
