Madagascar: Marc Ravalomanana calls his followers for a manifestation without riot
After the disqualification of Lalao Ravalomanana considered as a disposal policy for the movement of the former president deposed in 2009 and in exile on the side of South Africa, Marc Ravalomanana called his supporters for a manifestation in the streets against the decision of the special electoral court, which removed his wife from the presidential election of October 25.

"You will not create a riot, but only express your opinion. So, what is stopping you? ", said on Saturday by phone, the former strong man of Madagascar to supporters gathered in his stronghold of Magro in Behoririka in the Malagasy capital Tananarive.

"From my side, I made 90% of actions to oppose the elections, but I could not control 10% for the eviction of candidates", again reminded Marc
Ravalomanana, and before implicitly recognize that the electoral process initiated without the three controversial candidates (Andry Rajoelina, Didier Ratsiraka and Ravalomanana Lalao) is almost inevitable.

"If the elections are done, we will show that we are not blocking the expression of the people. However, you must follow the instructions and make sure to realize the real choice of the people", concluded the former Malagasy President Marc Ravalomanana.

As a reminder, at the end of August two manifestations of the pro-Ravalomanana in Tananarive had already been aborted.
