Madagascar’s Rajoelina declared winner of presidential vote by election commission

Andry Rajoelina has been declared the winner of Madagascar’s runoff presidential election. But after the electoral commission’s announcement, rival candidate Marc Ravalomanana’s team asked for the cancellation of the poll result in a filing with the High Constitutional Court, which has nine days to decide whether to confirm the provisional results.

Rajoelina won 55.66 percent of the vote compared to 44.34 percent for Ravalomanana and turnout was just over 48 percent.

The two ex-presidents – Ravalomanana and the man who ousted him in a 2009 coup, Rajoelina – had previously said they would accept the results, raising hopes of a peaceful outcome and no repeat of the political chaos seen nearly a decade ago.
