Madagascar president resigns ahead of polls in November

  • Madagascar's President Andry Rajoelina has resigned after being confirmed as a candidate in the country's presidential elections. The constitutional court stated that a sitting head of state must resign to contest the election.
  • The president of the senate declined to assume presidential powers after Rajoelina's resignation, leading the court to assign the government collectively with the prime minister as the head.
  • The official list of presidential candidates was published, with 13 out of 28 contenders selected, including Rajoelina, two former presidents Marc Ravalomanana and Hery Rajaonarimampianina. Madagascar aims for its third peaceful election since 2009 when Rajoelina took power in a coup, causing foreign investors to leave the country.
