Madagascar Postpones General Elections

After repeated logistical setbacks and also political deadlock between the president of the transitional government, Andry Rojoelina, and his opponents, the Independent National Election Commission of the Transition (CENIT), has announced that the country's presidential and parliamentary elections will be postponed until July 24.

CENIT through its president, Attallah Beatrice had earlier announced that Madagascar will hold presidential elections on May 8, 2013, and met with donors to present the budget and necessary resources for elections, calling on donors to lift all financial sanctions they took in 2009 because of the political crisis in the country.

Madagascar has been in political crisis since December 2008 following a stalemate between former President Marc Ravalomanana and the transitional president Andry Rajoelina, Mayor of Antananarivo from December 2007 to March 2009 who led a massive protest against Ravalomanana from 2002 to March 2009.
