Andry Rajoelina, the transitional leader, wanted the legislative elections to be completed before tackling the presidential election basically supposed to take place in May 2013 in Madagascar. He even announced his intention to alter the electoral calendar when he made pull out of the presidential race public. The International Community does not buy the point. The SADC’s latest officially stated stand emphasized that the electoral calendar is not to be altered any more. The presidential elections’ knock out round will have to come true on May 8th. It’s playoffs and the legislative elections will follow suit in July. The same statement addressed the amnesty to be granted to Marc Ravalomanana and Andry Rajoelina, the main decision makers in the Malagasy political dispute, who both accepted to pull out of the incoming presidential race

Nobody has ever been exposed to the Ebola virus either in Toamasina city or anywhere else in Madagascar. The single noticeable outbreak is that of formal reactions from the government in order to curtail any baseless panic wave. The head of the regional healthcare department of Toamasina city made it clear that neither city hospitals nor any other minor healthcare center have detected any infection with the Ebola virus anywhere. "There is no Ebola case whatsoever!" emphatically stated Frederic Rabearison. In the harbor city, a certain media group argued that one case of Ebola virus infection would have appeared. The very Head of Region quickly got a move on to dismiss this allegation before it scares local population and holiday makers away. "This allegation is wrong" emphasized Michel Talata. [See]

A coordination comitee has been provided to every branch of the legal Opposition by the presidential election' second finalist Jean Louis Robinson. The comitee clearly intends to stand and act legally and rejects every attempt to engage on subsersive action. The AVANA party's candidate is longing for claiming the 4th Republic's constitutional title of "Opposition's leader" for himself. [See]

The power transfer process between former transitional leader Andry Rajoelina and the new President Hery Rajaonarimampianina took place at the Palace of Iavoloha on January 24th in the morning before an audience of militants bearing the TGV party's colors. The ceremony finally turned into a "one man show" for the outgoing transitional leader. It took Andry Rajoelina a 20 minutes long speech to wave goodbye to his supporters and to the population, whereas Hery Rajaonarimampianina did not say a thing. His first formal speech will wait for his own investiture ceremony. [See]

The Ivato military airbase's famous warehouse has been successfully robbed on January 16th in the night. Prominently more than 4000 AK-47 assault rifle rounds constituted the thefts' booty. The incident does not bode well, now that the country arguably recovers the way out of the political crisis. As a recall, the Malagasy crisis has, since the year 2009, largely been fueled by the involvement of military forces, and even triggered by the putsch directed against Marc Ravalomanana in March 2009 by the CAPSAT base camp's mutiny.

The legislative elections related campaign and the duel for the presidential position are in full swing by now. During the latest weeks, garbage heaps have increasingly been littering the Malagasy capital city's streets. The city council simply declared, it cannot, for having run short of money to remove them as they are supposed to. So be it, this is no less but a godsend for the wanna be deputies linked to the transitional ruling power. They appear with what it takes to remove trash from targeted district's streets and make an electoral asset of this good deed in their campaign. A State institution suddenly bankrupts when legislative candidates who swore allegiance to transitional leader Andry Rajoelina have / need the opportunity to act heroes in the run of their electoral campaign. Good timing, is it not? [See]
