Madagascar: The government will ensure in a collegial manner the presidential functions in case of the resignation of the President of the Transition Andry Rajoelina
The Parliament of Transition of Madagascar comes to legislate thus closing a legal vacuum on the actual vacancy, if resignation of President Andry Rajoelina and candidate in the next presidential election.
 
It will thus be the Malagasy government which will ensure the presidential office and this, in a collegial manner.
 
A law that will have to be validated in terms of constitutionality as the fundamental law of the land grants in case of a vacancy in the presidency, the powers of the presidential office to a triumvirate composed of the Prime Minister and the Presidents of the two assemblies.
 
A choice that according to the Government, at the initiative of the text, ensures representation of the plurality of signatories of the Roadmap but promotes Andry Rajoelina who currently does not have full grip on the triumvirate.
The new law also provides that in case of further postponement of presidential elections, the President of the Transition automatically regain its position at the highest peak of the state.
