Seychelles has seen an increase in political pluralism in recent years, with an opposition coalition winning a parliamentary majority in 2016 and an opposition presidential candidate winning the post in 2020. However, government corruption remains a problem, as does lengthy pretrial detention. Migrant workers remain vulnerable to abuse.
