After three years of political breakdown in Madagascar, the SADC recommends the renewal of talks between the main political wire pullers in this crisis, namely former president Marc Ravalomanana, casted out in exile in South Africa since the year 2009’s putsch, and Andry Rajoelina, the putsch maker and current leader of the transitional ruling power. Nothing is a done deal yet. The decision was expressed as an outcome of the SADC’s extraordinary summit held in Luanda, Angola on June 1st.

The meeting would not even potentially come true, according to Andry Rajoelina’s proxies happening to be completely averse to renewing any kind of talks with the former president. Andry Rajoelina however has to withstand growing street protests and general strikes, and absolutely no solution in stock. He has no other choice but complying and negotiating in order to escape a dangerous dead end.

In the run of small talks with Ban Ki Moon, the United Nations’ Secretary General, Andry Rajoelina already conceded the possibility of the renewal of direct talks with the Malagasy ousted president.
