Madagascar: The United States exhorts for national dialogue and political stability in the Island

While 121 of the 151 elected deputies sitting in the Madagascar National Assembly have voted on May 26 for the dismissal of the Malagasy President Hery Rajaonarimampianina, the United States are keeping up with the political situation in the Island.
Washington thus does not want that the return of democratic processes in Madagascar is now compromised and that this becomes prejudicial to the development of the country.
The American authorities are urging including parties concerned to discuss in the respect for the institutions and stay in a political stability, a necessary condition for the economic development of the Island.
"The United States follow closely the current political development in Madagascar. The country has made significant progress since its elections and the return to democracy in 2013, and we expect that current developments will not adversely affect those achievements." "We call upon all parties to resolve the current political stalemate in the respect of the rule of law and through a national dialogue, in order to maintain political stability required to develop the economy, attract investment, creating the employment, and enhance the living conditions of the Malagasy people. All political leaders need to work together in order to allow Madagascar to meet its full potential. The well-being the people of Madagascar should be the primary priority of all, "said this weekend the spokesman of the US State Department John Kirby.
