While the Malagasy authorities have signed in 2008 a Memorandum of Understanding of the Development Community of Southern Africa on the gender parity in the Island, the under-representative of the fairer sex in the decision tree is still a reality at the heart of the local political scene.

Thus, women represent only 19% of the 30 members of the Malagasy government and 26% of the 151 deputies in the National Assembly are from the fairer sex. Three prefects are also classified on the 23 prefects of regions enumerated in Madagascar.
