Madagascar: Didier Ratsiraka, the elections will result in a more serious crisis and called to a meeting at the Summit between him, Andry Rajoelina, Marc Ravalomanana, and Albert Zafy
Disqualified from the race for the Malagasy Supreme magistracy by the Special Electoral Court (CES) on August 22, the former president, Didier Ratsiraka, returned to Madagascar in mid-April, has released last Wednesday, September 11, 2013 from his silence during a television program.

Didier Ratsiraka has said that elections are not "an end in itself" but "a step" which he considers as "useful" while preventing "the Malagasy people" that the elections may cause "a serious crisis ".

"What do you want, elections at all costs that will result in a more serious crisis, or a crisis exit with Malagasy reconciled?" He asked, offering his hand holding an extraordinary meeting upstream of the presidential election and legislative elections between him, the President of the Transition, Andry Rajoelina and former presidents Marc Ravalomanana and Zafy, as related by the newspaper L'Express of Madagascar.

As a reminder, the Christian Churches in Madagascar (FFKM) recognized as having a possible national reconciliation is always busy behind the scenes since last May, to organize this summit.

But the physical presence at the extraordinary summit of Marc Ravalomanana, stripped of his presidential power in 2009 and exiled from South Africa, has so far slowed down the process of broader dialogue initiated by the Christian Churches in Madagascar.

For Didier Ratsiraka "the return of Marc Ravalomanana to attend the meeting is a must, otherwise it will not be a summit".
