On the side of Ifotaka, only two voters abstained on the 7.303 registered voters, a record of 7.301 voters.

And Tsivory, 4139 voters are registered on the electoral list while at the same time 8692 people filled their electoral duty, as related by the newspaper
Alphonse Maka also argues that the serious anomalies were then corrected as asserted certain members of the census of voting materials (SRMV) with whom he was able to collect these figures.
Parliamentary Congress of the Transition thus invites the Independent National Electoral Commission of the Transition (CENIT) and the Special Electoral Commission (ESC) to bring these cases of fraud in a criminal court to identify the perpetrators and to ensure that the second round is not enameled such practices.
