Whereas the most problematic and urgent issues seem to be looked down on by deputies, the National Assembly is on the verge on welcoming a parliamentarian group enlivened by the brand new presidential party, and an Opposition group' spokesman obviously self proclaimed for having no parliamentarian opposition group to speak for.

The once HVM association mutates into the HVM political party. The pattern has become a trend over the latest presidential mandates. The brand new presidential party openly gravitates about the newly elected as chief of state Hery Rajaonarimampianina. It is topped by proxies and reliable friends of the president. The new party's first target is a success at the upcoming municipal elections for the sake of the conquest of a national basis and a potential pledge for a stronger majority, real or virtual, at the National Assembly.

The association Hery Vaovao ho an'i Madagasikara (HVM) finally mutated into a standard political party. The time to break free from its previous political family must have come for the new Malagasy president. Still, the transformation of the HVM into a political party does not automatically inspire confidence. The ruling staff would even potentially pay dearly for this move, since it happens to signal a will to keep grip on power, and to battle in the rule of arts if need be. [See]

Mistrust towards state officials is nowhere near to have withered. The public largely seems to approve the immediate implementation of the famous order 2014-001 which summons all parliament members to draw and deliver a list of their wealth and seriously restricts their immunity. The law draft got passed while the Republic's President still had to fight for a favorable majority at the Assembly. The political canvas is now different, for the executive layer of the ruling cast is in control of its legislative layer; the latter having to fear potential dismissal without notice from the former.

Est-ce une victoire pour la stabilité, le respect de la Constitution, la démocratie ? La petite crise institutionnelle au sein de l’Assemblée nationale a connu un épilogue attendu. La fin n’a jamais été un secret pour la Plate-forme pour la Majorité Présidentielle : renverser le bureau permanent présidé par la MAPAR Christine Razanamahasoa et donner une seconde chance à leur candidat Jean Max Rakotomamonjy. C’est le moyen d’y parvenir qui continue de faire débat. [See]

With support from the PMP parliamentarian group as well as from previously Rajoelina supportive deputies of the MAPAR group, the Republic's new President succeeded in recovering ground inside the National Assembly's permanent office. Christine Razanamahasoa, a Rajoelina supportive deputy elected as head of the parliament back in February, now has to pack up and leave the stage to Jean Max Rakotomamonjy, a deputy whose allegiance goes to the Leader Fanilo party. Jean Max Rakotomamonjy was elected by all of the deputies who attended the session while the largest part of the MAPAR parliamentarian group stood away. [See]

When State matters are turned into games, do we still have to be surprised by spotting a remake of the blockbuster Gangs of New York in the local National Assembly? The parliament's facilities are close to become battlegrounds disputed by two opposing parliamentarian groups. In the right corner, the PMP supportive of President Hery Rajaonarimampianina stands tall to the MAPAR in the opposite corner, supportive of Andry Rajoelina. The parliament's new internal rules are the formal bone of contention. The major stake in target is however the process of bringing the parliament's Permanent Office led by the Lower Chamber's Chairwoman down. Christine Razanamahasoa fastens her seat belt and clings to her position. [See]

The SECES (Union of Superior Education Professors-Searchers and Professors-Teachers) together with the SYNCORMAE (Union of Foreign Office Ministry's Bodies) has raised the issue of the still disputed four Malagasy islands Glorieuses, Juan do Nova, Europa and Bassas da India anew, as a way to let it be clear that Malagasy scholars have in no way forgotten about this unfinished business. The conference took place at the Foreign Office's facilities' conference hall. [See]

The least one can say is that the Republic's new President has a lot to do on schedule to restore any shadow of order in his administration bodies. Decentralization and the paramount distribution of power have so far remained projects. The transfer of State resources to its few decentralized branches has proved very limited, since the central administration still concentrates 96% of the State's expenses. State authority poorly echoes on the ground, while law application does not meet the expected success either. Mobs repeatedly render their own judgments and proceed to summary executions. Sentence: the strongly politicized Malagasy administration, largely undermined by nepotism and outdated human resources management, is nowhere near to meet its subjects' expectations. [See]

The best part of the new government's 31 high composition has been serving ministries before, either as minister, secretary general or director. The zero tolerance for reappointment, basically wanted by the Republic's President as well as some of the World Community's member states, failed from getting fully implemented. "Such a stand was no formal order. Some of those may be kept in, if their service has been proving most valuable" commented Kolo Roger about the issue. The government's openness may be reflected by the fact that neither the President nor his Prime Minister has sworn allegiance to any political party. [See]
