Andry Rajoelina : New Madagascar President, Second Political Victory …

 

ANTANANARIVO – 8 January 2019. A strong come back with this second victory,  Andry Nirina RAJOELINA is now the new Madagascar President. The High Constitutionnal Court (HCC) has announced today his definitive result of the presidential election held last December 2018 nine days after the Independent Electoral Commission (CENI) announced his. The announcement is done after a week of post election crisis from Marc Ravalomanana supporters pointing out massive fraud and defects. All schools were ordered by the Ministry of Education to close this afternoon for security reason.

 

Second seizure of power after 2009 …

 

Starting at 3.00 PM, the announcement ceremony ended at 5.30 PM and was marked by the presence of the two candidates at HCC headquarter. Not later than yesterday, the President of CENI Hery RAKOTOMANANA claimed the last election to be the most independent and cleanest election in Madagascar history.  

 

Despite the 1500 requests filed to the HCC by Marc Ravalomanana team last saturday, the victory still go to Andry RAJOELINA with  55, 66 % against  44,34 % for Marc Ravalomanana ; a  small difference compared to the CENI’s.  This can be considered as the greatest victory of MAPAR political party after 2009 against the same political figure. For supporter of the new President, this is the end of the Ravalomanana era as it sounds inconceivable to see this latter came back again in five years.  

 

Five years to make miracles …

 

For the next five years, Andry Rajoelina through his « Madagascar Emergence Initiative » (IEM)   will have to address the same permanent issues of the country. Known for the « good norm » [manara-penitra] and the « cheap » [mora] adjectives he generally use for public assets buit or given services, challenges are more deeper than appearance and cost.                 To say only a few, we have to review the quality of education not just distributing school kits to children, the JIRAMA’s recovery, corruption issue and insecurity …  for building a new town means nothing if you can’t feel secure in wandering around nor living in a a good looking house with unceasing power-water outage everyday… people needs to forget all these sickening hassles in their daily life.

 

Anyway, the new President has already been given all the best wishes possible yesterday during the new year celebration in Iavoloha.  His first task would be to form the new Government in charge of rising this country up.   Madagascar is craving for acceleration after 59 years of dormant development since its independence in 1960 …
