Madagascar: Japan supports the democratically elected institutions

While 121 of the 151 elected deputies sitting at the Madagascar National Assembly have voted on May 26 for the dismissal of the Malagasy President Hery Rajaonarimampianina, Japan in the voice of its ambassador in the Big Island, Ryuhei Hosoya, recently put forward the stability of the country, the only guarantee for sustainable development.
"In solidarity with the Malagasy people, Japan strongly supports the country and its democratically elected institutions. With the social and economic situation still critical by the five years of crisis, thus the elected institutions are too precious to be prematurely suspended," said Japanese Ambassador.
The latter thus calls all those concerned towards responsibility, while specifying that the Japanese authorities do not want a dismissal of the President Hery Rajaonarimampianina. The dissolution of the National Assembly for Japan is also undesirable.
"We make an appeal to ratiocinate, to calm and appeasement based on dialogue. We have faith in the wisdom of all to give priority to sustainable stability in the true respect for the general interest of Malagasy people," said the Japanese diplomat whose country is part of the International Support Group on Madagascar (GIS-M).
