The Special Electoral Court has released on February 6th the formal results to the legislative elections held on December 20th 2013, and as expected, did not create any massive contrast to what the National Electoral Commission published either. A relative majority is being granted to the former transitional leader Andry Rajoelina and the MAPAR, his political group. Still, the other political groups are commonly planing to join forces and oppose Rajoelina and his devoted deputies. [See]

Hery Rajaonarimampianina's first steps as president still had a taste of transitional continuity. The new tenant of Iavoloha still has to mark his territory. There are those who may count on the beginners luck; He opened up with a mistake which could well be forgiven, but so easily forgotten. His first interventions on air have so far been failing to reflect the expected image of a strong president promised during the election campaign. [See]

His first ever Cabinet meeting held on Wednesday January 29th has produced his first important decisions concerning the Republic's presidency. Hery Rajaonarimampianina proceeded to cleaning his own department out and getting it rid of figures and sub departments happening to be too closely linked to the former transitional presidency.

He used to be little more than a replacement candidate building on his reliability as transitional finance minister, a playboy sharing money and electoral promises out precinct by precinct, without any shadow of long term viable program up his sleeve. Now that electoral victory is his, what can the Malagasy People expect at all? Hery Rajaonarimampianina drew the headlines of his first decent political program in the run of his first presidential speech. He expects the President to make a key contribution to the restoration of confidence in the State, its rule of law, as well as into the recovery of security and economic growth. [See]

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. How easy will he find to get rid of this putsch maker who has run out of credit but not of troublemaking potential. [See]

Sms text messages sent at random have been circulating since the year 2009 concerning the return home of the former president kept out in exile in South Africa. No Ravalomanana political sphere leader has ever confirmed this rumored come back so far. The Antananarivo region's state police leader made it clear that an arrest warrant against the former president would not be forgotten, could he ever recover Madagascar. The trap has been lying wide opened. But, unlike what he used to do earlier, Marc Ravalomanana has no more fueled any hint of his come back to the Great Isle any more ever since. [See]

The Marc Ravalomanana related issue is far from being deal with, five years after the putsch which claimed his position. But, following Hery Rajaonarimampianina's strongly challenged presidential electoral victory, another issue looms ahead: Andry Rajoelina, the outgoing transitional leader. What will the former DJ entered in politics play for a role? [See]

The Special Electoral Court issued a verdict without stirring any surprise on January 18th, 2014 : "Is elected president of the Republic of Madagascar , the candidate Rajaonarimampianina Rakotoarimanana Hery Martial ." The official results of the second round of the presidential election held on December 20, 2013 clearly display a 53.49 % win for him against 46.51 % for his opponent Jean Louis Robinson. [See]

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. The post electoral crisis which developed back in 2002 does not scare the Special Electoral Court which refused to proceed to any electoral report check up, let alone to any recount. The legal loophole sounds like: frauds cannot be proved, for evidences are part of them; frauds had to get prevented before and during the voting process. [See]
