The Malagasy Government has approved the electoral calendar proposed by the Independent National Electoral Commission (CENI) for the presidential election. The first round is scheduled for November 9, followed by the second round on December 20.
During a meeting held at the Prime Minister’s Palace in Mahazoarivo, Antananarivo, the Malagasy Government gave its approval to the electoral calendar for the presidential election proposed by the Independent National Electoral Commission (CENI). Prime Minister Christian Ntsay announced that the first round of the presidential election will be held on November 9, followed by the second round on December 20.
The Prime Minister stressed the importance of good governance, respect for the rule of law and democracy in Madagascar, saying that these principles were effectively put into practice in the country. This validation of the electoral calendar offers Malagasy voters a clear vision of the key dates of the upcoming presidential election.
In addition to validating the electoral calendar, the government also adopted a decree convoking voters, urging citizens of voting age to exercise their right to vote. In addition, four other decrees related to the elections were studied and validated during the government meeting.
The preparation of the presidential election marks a major turning point for Madagascar, which will elect a new President of the Republic for a five-year term. In accordance with the Malagasy Constitution, the current President must resign from his post 60 days before the election date, i.e. next September.
