The Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic Mauritius (French: Vice-Premier Ministre) is the senior member of the Cabinet of Mauritius. The actual Deputy Prime Minister Ivan Collendavelloo was appointed by the President on 20 December 2016 after the resignation of Xavier-Luc Duval. The Deputy Prime Minister is the first in line to succeed the Prime Minister on a temporary basis in case the latter is out of the country, sick, resigns or dies suddenly.


According to the Constitution of Mauritius there shall be a Prime Minister and a Deputy Prime Minister who shall be appointed by the President on the advice of the Prime Minister.[2]

The Deputy Prime Minister is the first person to hold the office of Prime Minister and head of government in case the latter is absent from Mauritius or is by reason of illness or of section 60(5) unable to perform the functions conferred on him by the Constitution. The President, by directions in writing, authorize the Deputy Prime Minister or, in his absence, some other Minister to perform those functions and that Minister may perform those functions (Acting Prime Minister) until his authority is revoked by the President.[2]
