Madagascar: Ravalomanana Lalao refuses to withdraw her candidacy for the presidential election
Lalao Ravalomanana has decided not to throw in the towel and wants more than ever to seek the highest office in Madagascar, despite international pressure yet demands the immediate withdrawal of her candidacy for the next presidential Malagasy  election, just like that of Didier Ratsiraka and Andry Rajoelina.

The wife of the former President Marc Ravalomanana, exiled in South Africa since 2009 and was chosen to represent his political movement, wants to go to the end of his political struggle against the odds.
 
Lalao Ravalomanana began on Tuesday in the district of Faravohitra in Tananarive, a clear message to those who would prevent it from appearing before the universal suffrage of her country.
 
"I'm still here. I am designated and why they still want to replace me?" She said loudly.
According Lalao Ravalomanana, her candidacy is legitimate since the law since approved by a sovereign decision of the Special Electoral Court (CES)
 
"We have special Electoral Court. We should accept its decisions, because it is the highest court for trial. This is sovereign", argued Lalao Ravalomanana, to justify her decision to maintain its inflexible application for next presidential election of the Big Island.
