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.

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]
