Madagascar: Rajoelina's party rails against the postponement of elections

The mobility of the President of the Transition, Andry Rajoelina, criticizes the decision of the Independent National Electoral Commission for the transition (CENI-T) postponement of the presidential election in July 24.
Those close to Andry Rajoelina do not mince their words to the international community and demanding the resignation of the Prime Minister Omer Berikizy.

"We ask ourselves the question if Madagascar has already been sold in bulk, if there are no more leaders in this country or if they try to remove them", denounced Rakotomavo Lanto, Vice-President the Superior Council of the transition (CST) and national Secretary of Tanora Malagasy Vonona (TGV), the party founded by Andry Rajoelina decided since mid-January, not to seek the seat for the presidency in Madagascar.
The mobility of Andry Rajoelina also insists for several weeks that elections take place prior to the presidential elections. The electoral calendar selected on Wednesday by the INEC -T fixed the parliamentary elections on September 25, 2013, at the same time as the second round of presidential elections.

A choice which strongly irritates within the ranks of Andry Rajoelina. The national secretary of for TVG, Roberto Tinoka Raharoriaka, "it is reasonable to ask whether the Malagasy, jealous of their independence hard-won with the blood of their elders, have taken the measure of the seriousness of the situation", he claimed to the site.
"They are the allies of the SADC (Editor's note: Community Development Southern Africa) who takes pleasure in inflicting the worst punishments to the Malagasy people while thinking only of their own interests", concluded Tinoka Roberto Raharoriaka.
