Tiako I Madagasikara : Marc Ravalomanana missed Mahamasina stadium

 

Antananarivo 8 July 2017.  The celebration of the 15th  anniversary of Tiako I Madagasikara (TIM) political party has promised this morning the evident confrontation between armed forces and population as a result of a political tension lasting for days. Led by the undeterred former President Marc Ravalomanana, population have come in great numbers,  from town and different regions.

 

To reestablish the rule of law in Madagascar, the affair has seen the intrusion of the Union of Magistrates (SMM). Faniry Ernaivo, President of the SMM has posted on her facebook wall that  « A new decision cannot suspend the execution of an  administrative court  judgment ! This has become abusive »

 

Despite a court judgment giving permission to the TIM for a Zumba party at the Mahamasina stadium, the site was still this morning sealed and guarded outwardly by the EMMOREG. Starting the celebration at Carlton hotel, people have followed the way to Behoririka encumbering main roads in city center. Tear gases to spread people,  the impressive manifestation recalled the 2002 coup and the display of power of Marc Ravalomanana supported by his followers ;  a celebration in closed door might have been better. By 3h pm, TIM followers have taken their leader to his house in Faravohitra.

 

The restriction of any public manifestation of other political parties than the HVM has always been considered as a fear of current Government of not winning presidential elections in 2018 by showing the current president’s  loss of popularity who continues without interruption his weekly appearance on his youtube channel «  Fotoam-bita ». In all cases, arm-wrestling has started between Marc Ravalomanana and Hery Rajaonarimampianina. If a mere birthday meeting led to a clash, what would it be for a real manifestation of democracy ?
