Madagascar: Jean-Louis Robinson defeated in the presidential still challenges the transparency of the votes

Jean-Louis Robinson of the Avana party and supported by the Ravalomanana movement, beaten in the second round of the Malagasy presidential of December 20 by the candidate Hery Rajaonarimampianina who had the favours of the regime of the Transition led by Andry Rajoelina, denounces an election marred by massive fraud.
And despite the official proclamation of the final results by the Special Electoral Court (CES) last Friday who selected Hery Rajaonarimampianina as first President of the Fourth Republic of Madagascar, Jean-Louis Robinson wishes to file a complaint arguing that human rights have been violated during this presidential and calls upon the international community a new count of ballots.
"All the evidence that we have made have not been examined. The exact choice of the general public has been violated, and we will exploit each possibility and every legal means probable to get to the truth ... If a new CES must be formed and calls into question the results, it should be done. The international community has been able to change the first CES, it should be able to do the same for the second, "said Jean-Louis Robinson.
The latter equally specified that a call into question of the election of the new president, Hery Rajaonarimampianina, by street protests of his supporters, "is not for the time being the order of the day", as reported by the newspaper L' Express of Madagascar.
