The European Union has issued an ultimatum to the controversial candidates of the Malagasy presidential, postponed indefinitely for now, but without citing the main stakeholders and still wants to hold the presidential and legislative elections in 2013.

Andry Rajoelina, Ravalomanana and Didier Ratsiraka Lalao are invited specifically to withdraw their candidatures within two weeks or face a travel ban and with also the key to freeze their financial assets on the outside, as indicates the newspaper Express of Madagascar.

"The European Union would be determined to adopt, in consultation with other international partners and in line with the recommendations of the GIC - M (Editor's Note: international contact group for Madagascar), restrictive measures targeted exclusively on people hindering the electoral process and the implementation of the roadmap", including the statement of the European Union published on Tuesday.
