Madagascar: Prime Minister Roger Kolo compelled to resign

The Prime Minister Roger Kolo appointed head of the Malagasy government nine months ago has resigned from his post on Monday night.
In recent days, his times at the Mahazoarivo palace were undoubtedly counted.
With a record challenged as head of government, the Malagasy president Hery Rajaonarimampianina had specifically asked him this weekend to leave his post.
Roger Kolo has refused and negotiated to the end its maintenance as head of government.
His relatives claim that it is the president's entourage who pushed out the tenant of the Mahazoarivo palace.
A resignation which intervenes while today is opened the second summit meeting between the last five Malagasy Presidents (Hery Rajaonarimampianina, Andry Rajoelina, Marc Ravalomanana, Didier Ratsiraka and Albert Zafy) and where national reconciliation is again at the heart of debates.
