Mauritian Social Democrat Party
PMSD: Parti Mauricien Social Démocrate

Sir Gaëtan Duval (1930-1996) was the leader of the Mauritian Social Democrat Party (in French, Parti Mauricien Social Démocrate, PMSD), founded in 1953 and once partisan of the integration of Mauritius to the United Kingdom. Gaëtan Duval’s succession was not easy and the party split into the PMSD, led by Maurice Allet and keeping the original party’s emblem, the rooster, and the PMXD, founded by Sir Gaëtan’s son Xavier Duval and using the horse as its emblem. Attempts to reconciliate the two factions have failed since then and the PMSD is still in the opposition.
