Madagascar’s President Andry Rajoelina has called a May 27 referendum on changing the constitution, to do away with the country’s Senate and give more powers to the regions.
Andry Rajoelina was sworn in on Saturday in Antananarivo as President of Madagascar for a five-year term.
The 2018 two-round elections in Madagascar were beset by allegations of fraud from both leading political parties and a contested result which may raise the risk of renewed political instability.
Andry Rajoelina has been declared the winner of a runoff presidential election in Madagascar, according to full provisional results released on Thursday by the electoral commission.
Madagascar presidential candidate Andry Rajoelina is leading in an election runoff after 92 % of the votes were declared, the electoral commission said on Sunday, drawing allegations of fraud from rival Marc Ravalomanana.
