Madagascar: 121 deputies vote for the dismissal of the President Hery Rajaonarimampianina




121 of the 151 elected deputies sitting in the National Assembly of Madagascar have voted for a very large majority on Tuesday evening to the dismissal of the Malagasy President Hery Rajaonarimampianina. The parliamentarians of the Lower House accused the Head of State of violating the constitution of the country.
 
The Supreme Constitutional Court must now give its views on the legitimacy of this exceptional measure. The two-thirds majority was necessary to enact the revocation proceedings. Only four deputies voted against it and this, out of the 125 deputies who participated in the vote.
