The Parliament of Mauritius on Monday elected the new president of an island nation in the southwestern Indian Ocean by a majority vote. This post was taken by the 61-year-old Prithvirajsing Roopun, France-Presse reported. 

He replaced the first woman in the history of the country at this post - Ameenah Gurib who resigned in 2018 as a result of a financial scandal, TASS reported.

Mauritius is a parliamentary republic, and PM Pravind Jugnauth, 57, proposed the candidate for the president.
