Although Hery Rajaonarimampianina is no match for Barack Obama's grace and elegance, he may possibly compare to French President Francois Hollande. Nieither of their first respective steps as Presidents did contribute to improve their image as much as basically expected. Hery Rajaonarimampianina seems much less like a President with accounting skills than like a general accountant taking charge as a President. [See]

The freshly declared new President inherits in his early days in charge of a political crisis and a institutional crisis in the making. Hery Rajaonarimampianina would really be keen on ruling the country his way and not as a vassal to the outgoing transitional leader who massively boosted, politically and financially speaking, his electoral campaign.

It must have been a lost cause from scratch. The Ravalomanana sphere's candidate failed from producing satisfying evidences of massive electoral frauds according to the Court' standards.
