Thousands of people demonstrated in the capital city center, longing for freedom of speech and calling upon the Place of Democracy to be reopened, and were entitled to tear gas and rubber bullets as an answer from the HAT’s police forces. While heavily armed masked soldiers were holding the front line, their general Richard Ravalomanana got its legal parade ready, namely the legal defense of a private property, that of Antananarivo’s Urban Commune.

Each and every decision stemming from the ruling power concerning the crisis caused by the teachers' strike was unilateral. The national education minister’s big stick policy fell through, now is the prime minister taking charge with a better proposal to MGA 25 billion and a fewer threats. Will teachers resign themselves with 11% of their claims and stop the strike? [See]

After being dealt with by the HAT’s police forces with tear gas, Mamy Rakotoarivelo is now the Rajoelina regime’s next political target. The President of the transitional congress is being summoned by the ordinary criminal court, as a matter of fact a flagrant violation of the roadmap. The victim denounced the resumption of the unilateralism policy and announced that the Ravalomanana political sphere is to keep away from whatever parliamentary and governmental meetings. [See]

The Ravalomanana political sphere’s transitional parliamentarians and ministers were not able to access the "place of democracy" in Ambohijatovo. The HAT’s police forces did what it takes to disperse the sphere’s supporters basically expecting to listen to the officials’ report about the current political situation concerning the implementation of the roadmap. Political repression is, just as usual, being conducted and legally covered by law enforcement charges, since opposition’s demonstration in this "prohibited place" is not and would anyway never be authorized.

Will the almost unanimous vote of the Amnesty Law for the sake of National Reconciliation be reconciling the Malagasy? The year 2009’s putsch makers’ virtual majority in both parliamentarian chambers actually fixed the debate from scratch. The challenge remains the same: Andry Rajoelina must not have to confront Marc Ravalomanana in the presidential race. The amnesty law in its current shape happens to be thoroughly contradicting the roadmap’s mind. Its purpose is to rule the odd ones out [See]

The amnesty draft expected to bring national reconciliation back has been passed by both chambers of the transitional parliament dominated by Rajoelina’s sphere. The result is not surprising considering that not a single parliamentarian has ever been elected. The TGV made law happens to be putting the odd ones out without having to extensively name them. The Ravalomanana sphere expressed its opposition and withdrew from the "absurd" vote, taking away by so doing the precious inclusiveness. [See]

Now that the time has come for the police forces to assess how good they have been preserving security and social peace in Antananarivo, the macabre murder which recently took place at General Claude Ramananarivo’s home ruined any potentially good balance sheet. Do the armed forces have to face up to their demons again? The crime does bear so many similarities with a plot. The former state police’s commander actually completed his duty regarding political events into which the army was largely involved. [See]

The amnesty law definitely happens to be the key to the Malagasy crisis created by putsch in 2009. The related political negotiations had moreover quite a poor start. The ultimate goal remains the presidential election; President Marc Ravalomanana and national reconciliation. In order to settle the issue, the SADC certainly produced a memorandum which is however being interpreted the other way. [See]

The short visit paid by the Troika and the SADC experts in Antananarivo proved not decisive. It was rather the first episode of a consultation process focusing on the amnesty bill. The memorandum drafted by the delegation led by Marius Fransman will not yet the law deemed to settle the crisis. The transitional parliament will be the one entitled to the last say. [See]

The current delegation of legal experts and Troika members sent by the SADC is not expecting to settle the Malagasy crisis right away as a whole. Lowering tensions might well be widely accepted, but reconciliation is definitely not, for enmity is deeply poled between political adversaries. The amnesty bill comes up to a tool deemed to rule the odd ones out. [See]
