Provisional figures released by the independent National Electoral Commission for the Transition (INEC-T) on Sunday evening, give the candidate Henry Rajaonarimampianina winner with a score of 52.89% against 47.21% to Jean Louis Robinson. However, some provide criticism of either side on possible irregularities.
Jean-Louis Robinson believes that within his Avana party, prosecution will be initiated against what he calls "the authors of the massive electoral fraud" as specified in the Midi Madagasikara site. The presidential candidate strongly criticised the CENI-T, which he accused of complicity in the level of irregularities. He was confident of a victory in the presidential elections. Thus, he claimed the resignation of Attalah Beatrice, President of the CENI-T. The candidate who is supported by former president of Madagascar, Marc Ravalomanana, has told the press yesterday that he would have won the elections with "more than 60%".

For its part, Attalah Beatrice appealed to Robinson to use "the numerous legal provisions in order to verify the existence of possible fraud" as relates L'Express of Madagascar. She said that the commission rejected the application filed by the counsel of Robinson, who calls for the suspension of the counting of votes, which would allow him "to control the unique unused ballots during voting on December 20".
