Madagascar election judged free and fair
Issued on: Modified:
International election observers have hailed Madagascar's presidential election as credible, free and transparent. It is seen as an important step in restoring democracy after five years of crisis, prompted by the ousting of former president Marc Ravalomanana by Andry Rajoelina, the current president of the transitional government. Denis Kadima, the leader of one African observers' team, comments.
