The United States of America have not brought cases of violation of human rights on the Great Isle to light for the first time ever. The latest report by the State Department was only much more severe against local security forces, stigmatized for various abuses, more especially for arbitrary executions. [See]

His silence began to be a cause for concern. The President of the Republic was increasingly bullied by his former friends turned by the course of events into his arch opponents. Hery Rajaonarimampianina took charge in a firm way and dismissed the transitional key men without more ado, whose functions had an impact on the political level. With growing support to rely on, he dared to turn the appointment of the Mapar group's Haja Resampa as prime minister, but promised not to bypass the law. At the same time , his favorite candidate Etienne Jules has to muster a majority in the National Assembly . [See]

Hery Rajaonarimampianina will ultimately be allowed to freely choose his future Prime Minister. Despite the Mapar parliamentarian group's prerogative of enforcing its single candidate, the President took Jules Etienne's candidacy proposed by a Presidential Majority (PMP) currently trailing behind the Mapar in the National Assembly. The President's position was made stronger by the High Constitutional Court's non binding point about the appointment and function of the head of government, a point certainly influenced and supported by prominent law experts such as Honoré Rakotomanana. The Rajoelina sphere's power abates. [See]

The president won a battle when successfully deterring the former leader of the Transition from claiming the Prime Minister's position for himself. The former transitional leader sends his clone in his stead, his trusted man, his political puppet. In opposition to the unique proposal of Haja Resampa, the Presidential Majority also proposed a name so far kept secret, possibly Jules Etienne . The High Constitutional Court refuses to referee the duel and keeps away from turning any legally binding advice out. [See]

President Hery Rajaonarimampianina does not lose his cold blood in spite of his majority' suffered blow at the National Assembly in the run of the battle for the Prime Minister's position. He stoically conceded that his prime minister will have to be proposed by Andry Rajoelina's MAPAR group which claimed 49 seats out of 151. The country's new helmsman declared that the choice would have to emerge from negotiations alone and denies any argued international pressure. [See]

Election promises produced by the former Transitional Minister of Justice convinced the MAPAR group's parliament members to stick to the line in the run of the vote. Some other parliament members have even swapped sides. Many privileges and especially the beloved 4WD vehicle served as decisive arguments in favor of Christine Razanamahasoa, now head of the National Assembly. The Republic's President's austerity policy is jeopardized. [See]

No stunning surprise did emerge from the heated battle for the National Assembly's presidency. Victory for Christine Razanamahasoa, the Mapar group's champion, was expected since its coalition with independent parliament members loosely gathered within the GPS group claimed the absolute majority inside the Parliament.

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.
