Madagascar: Didier Ratsiraka forward the idea of a collective leadership to overcome the crisis

Former Malagasy president, Didier Ratsiraka, wishes that a collegial leadership be quickly put in place, and this, in order to avoid that Madagascar experience a "new political crisis" or "a civil war" in the wake of the second round of the already disputed presidential election which saw the victory of Hery Rajaonarimampianina supported by the regime of the Transition of Andry Rajoelina against Jean-Louis Robinson supported by the Ravalomanana clan.
As a reminder, the former Minister of finance, Hery Rajaonarimampianina, has collected after the counting of special electoral commission (CES) 53.50% of the votes cast, in contrast to 46.50% against his opponent of the Avana party.

"International mediation was a failure. And this, to the extent that even if the elections were held peacefully, a new crisis is feared. The international community has failed in its mission, however, it does not want to recognise its mistakes," said Didier Ratsiraka, as reported by the Midi Madagasikara newspaper.

Didier Ratsiraka thus recommends the establishment of a collective leadership led by four front-runners of the main political movements of the island, namely that of Albert Zafy, Marc Ravalomanana, Andry Rajoelina and his party of AREMA (The Vanguard for the renovation of Madagascar) with him at its head, and the two finalists of the presidential election, Hery Rajaonarimampianina and Jean-Louis Robinson.
