The results of the 2023 elections in Mauritania… victory or collapse?

Dreamy feelings are often mixed with realistic facts among impulsive politicians in their moments of euphoria by achieving some gains that they saw as a distant dream, so they see with their “eyes of enthusiasm” the imminent collapse as a resounding victory, and they see with their “eyes of intoxication” the flagrant fraud by pressuring the weak and forcing them to vote for certain candidates In exchange for small sums of money, a real choice of a party with a heart that suffices to ward off it and its representatives by witnessing the ways in which people were dragged into the pens of forced election.

On the “ruins” of Arafat usurped by the force of displacement and forgery, His Excellency the writer and rising political jurist, Judge Al-Dah Walad Amar Talib, stood reciting romantic poems celebrating the baby party’s separation of Arafat’s boycott from the opposition after twenty years of its resistance to the legions of loyalists during the days when Arafat was a natural boycott in which to vote. Its residents only, and they compete in choosing who will take charge of their province, in a natural competition that is subject to change according to programs and candidates.

And at a time when Minister Dah – a lover of poetry – was proud of the house of the relative of Muallaqa Zuhair bin Abi Salma, men from the ruling majority parties in Nouakchott and in the cities of the interior were chanting verses from the muallaqa itself about the danger of “resurrecting” wars, and appealing to His Excellency President Muhammad Ould Cheikh al-Ghazwani called for “abs and zebian to be rectified” before they put together “perfume from a sniff”, so that these elections for the country overlooking the volcano of unrest will produce “boys who are as old as red men.”

It was expected that the outcomes of the first parliamentary and municipal elections organized during the era of President Ghazouani would preserve the democratic gains for which the Mauritanians sacrificed, strengthen the spirit of constructive consensus, consolidate the values ​​of effective political participation, move away from the greed of destructive selfishness, and truly achieve the meaning of “fairness”. By distancing those in charge of it from the logic of exclusion and societal aggravation.

It was also assumed that the president’s supporters, in particular, would distance themselves from preaching the culture of political despair and coercive oppression of the majority and opposition parties alike, and that they would be consistent with the slogan “the head of the national consensus,” and his emphasis in his campaign of “pledges” not to leave anyone “on the side of the road.” And he opened the door of the presidential palace on his first assignment to most of the politicians whom I heard good words, and listened well to them, so they left rejoicing, before the silent and speaking grumbling invaded the parties satisfied with his excellency with the spoils of good words.

The most dangerous thing that afflicts political elites is believing illusions based on false aspirations, such as the delusion of Mr. Mokhtar Ould Ajay and those who conspired with him in the “deceptive sweep” elections show that there are people on the globe now who believe such disgusting results that themselves revealed the impotence of the current system His poor administrative performance and the disintegration of his political structures were not revealed by any political incident before.

The elections and their miserable circumstances, from the beginning of their lackluster preparations to the arrival of the results controlled by installments and distillation, revealed the reality of the premature aging of the current regime. Its reality is weakness wrapped in cunning and deception, waving the stick of sanctions, and using the illusion of the prestige of the state, the majority of which suddenly became threatening revolution and aggravation.

And the mayors of the “depths” in it became ready to die in order to protect the electoral report from the fraud that afflicted everyone’s noses with the agreement of the political parties, and the first among them was the Insaf Party, which was full of imaginary gains, and was saturated with what the people did not really give it. A stone from Wagner’s mercenaries, the pioneer of chaos in the region, they say with their mouths to the president, we will not elect you in the upcoming presidential elections.

The people there are aware that the ongoing elections are a prelude to the 2024 presidential elections, and they are wondering about the role of the president, or rather his absence, in the ongoing crisis that threatens the stability of the country and its societal peace, and this is a valid question, since election fraud and a sense of political injustice have always been a precursor to political crises that afflicted countries in Africa and Asia. America, with its well-established institutions, did not escape these tremors. The dilemma of electoral transparency is what made Americans storm Capitol Hill in 2021.

The question about President Ould Al-Ghazwani and his role in the details of public affairs in Mauritania has been escalating since His Excellency assumed the presidency for several objective reasons, the first of which is that the system of government that is led by a presidential system with its wide powers known and required to be present in major national issues, second: that he presented to the people with a new letter of Article The “covenant” has a prominent presence, and from it his electoral program “My pledges” was derived, which has been forgotten, although that program is the charter of the social covenant between him and the people in this mission that is about to end.

The third reason: and it is the most dangerous of them, negatively and positively, is the large space in which the president’s men and his people of confidence move, which made their presence overshadow his presence, and the fourth: that the people are newly acquainted with the former President Muhammad Ould Abdel Aziz, who was present in all political and general details by providing benefit to some of his supporters, and providing Damage to all his opponents, with his patience to receive the attack on him, and his ferocity in responding to his critics tirelessly.

And the fifth reason: the ability of social media activists and the media opposing Walad al-Ghazwani to consolidate the image of the “absent president” among the general public as a realistic fact that does not accept discussion, with the consequent description of weakness and indifference.

The narrative of the “absent president” and the above reasons are due to two pivotal issues in the nature of Walad al-Ghazwani’s personality. The first is that he is a man of “men of delegation.” If he entrusts someone with responsibility, he gives him full powers, which is something known about him even before the presidency. He was “raised” in it and grew up, and it is an environment whose people compete in carrying out the tasks entrusted to them to the point of “annihilation”.

The second: His love for the virtues of morals and his fame for that, but his concept of good morals is a vague concept that stems from the centrality of “stop harm” in Sufism, and does not take into account the logic of justice and the conditions of reason by rewarding the good and punishing the bad, and this clashes with the ABCs of politics and the laws of scrambling.

The truth is that Walad al-Ghazwani is far from weak, as he is full of reason and knows what he wants and how to achieve it. However, his predominance of the principle of delegation could have been praiseworthy in a country that has well-established institutions that can carry out their tasks in the best way, and it has oversight and judicial institutions that carry out their roles, but in the case of Mauritania, it reversed. This mandate leads to a flaw that affects the head and foundation of the regime, which appears to all observers of the ferocity of competition between the poles of the regime that has not yet been formed.

It also appears in the phenomenon of spreading and rampant corruption and unleashing the hands of the corrupt with the security of punishment, and in the faltering of infrastructure projects and other achievements heralded by “my pledges”, and the electoral anger and what resulted from it are only symptoms of the phenomenon of the absence of the president who appears as a constitutional monarch in a Scandinavian country and not a president with Military background ruling an African country.

On a personal level, we can praise the morals of Walad al-Ghazwani and the principle of delegation to him, and we were promised in a speech announcing his candidacy to invest what God has bestowed upon him in terms of education for the advancement of our country, but the covenants and covenants between peoples and their rulers are not implemented by temperaments, natures and desires, but rather by a sense of responsibility, hard work and the accumulation of achievements Implementation of plans, appointment of competent people, and punishment of spoilers.

The time has come and the drums of political crisis are beating for Walad al-Ghazwani to realize the huge differences between running a weary state that has suffered from the lean years of its people and officials until their morals relapsed, and between living in a Sufi corner based on asceticism, humility, mastery of deeds, competition for good deeds, and “divorcing” oneself of one’s fortunes.

The results of these elections and the reactions to them from the majority itself, and the grimness that hung over the opposition and the Insaf Party itself, all of this portends a crushing danger that may be fueled at any time by factors of social crisis, economic hardships, poor education, the scourges of unemployment and poverty, and the spread of despair among the youth who preferred Adventures and dangers in the jungles of Latin America to survive in their repellent homeland.

This election and its results have brought about all the good mental images that Ghazwani would like to draw about him, and the people believed them for a while, so he must now restore matters to their proper place by reining in the wings of aggravation in his regime, and not let this moral and political scandal become one of the titles of his era And that his mandate is neither negative nor positive.

He may also continue to consolidate the moral of “altruism”, and wait for the formation of a serious opposition that is not satisfied with good words, and does not shy away from hurtful criticism that disturbs his friendly Excellency, knowing that nothing kindles revolutions like the spread of despair, feelings of injustice, and blockage of paths to political participation, as Ashraf knows. For this scandalous farce in terms of support, planning and implementation, the Insaf Party does not deserve this electoral status even if it combines the strength of Mukhtar Ould Ajay and the poor performance of the Dah Ould Abdel Jalil Committee.
