The key issues in the Mauritania election include slavery, migration, and corruption. Approximately 3% of the population is enslaved, and the country is a transit point for migrants attempting to reach Europe. The European Union has granted €210m in aid, with a portion allocated to combating illegal immigration. Corruption remains a significant problem, with the former president jailed for illicit enrichment and embezzlement. Despite its rich natural resources, nearly 59% of the population lives in poverty. Mauritania also has potential in renewable energy, particularly green hydrogen, attracting investors from Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.
