Madagascar: Slingers deputies who want the dismissal of Hery Rajaonarimampianina want to run the country's affairs




The Supreme Constitutional Court is expected to decide by mid-June on the legitimacy of the exceptional measure started last week by the slingers deputies to impeach the President of Madagascar Hery Rajaonarimampianina.
 
Article 52 of the Constitution states "following the resignation, abandonment of power in whatever form, death, permanent inability or pronounced forfeiture, the Presidency of the vacancy of the Republic is recognized by the high Constitutional Court. ""Upon recognition of the vacancy of the Presidency the duties of the Head of State is exercised by the President of the Senate. In the absence of the President of the Senate declared by the High Constitutional Court, the duties of the Head of State shall be exercised collectively by the government. "
 
For slingers deputies, this article would be valid solely in the absence of the Head of State and not for the present situation, while the Senate is not yet formed in the Island. The deputies thus claim that the National Assembly can manage that it should occur the country's affairs and not hand power to the government.
 
As a reminder, 121 of the 151 elected deputies sitting in the National Assembly of Madagascar have voted by a large majority on Tuesday for the dismissal of Malagasy President Hery Rajaonarimampianina. The parliamentarians of the Lower House accuse the head of state of violating the constitution.
