Madagascar: For Andry Rajoelina the postponement of the elections does not have the approval of the United Nations
The president of the Transition, Andry Rajoelina has affirmed on a Malagasy televised speech that the postponement of the presidential elections in Madagascar for next July 24 does not have the approval of the United Nations.

"I have just received a letter from Suzanna Malcora, Director of Office of Ban Ki-moon. I quote: There must be a consensus among all stakeholders that must be consulted both on the sequences as well as the timetable for elections", said Andry Rajoelina, before the cameras.

Andry Rajoelina criticizes therefore the passage in force of the decision of the independent National Electoral Commission (INEC-T) for the transition taken on 5 February at Ivato.

The President of the Transition, Andry Rajoelina, who formalized since mid-January, its non-application to the chair of the President of the Big Island, also militates in scenes for several weeks that the parliamentary elections will be held before the presidential.
 
The electoral timetable set last Wednesday by the CENI-T States that the elections will be held on September 25, 2013, at the same time as the second round of the presidential election.

For Andry Rajoelina, the maintenance of the current electoral schedule may cause "disorder" in the country.
