The pre-election campaign is currently in full swing for potential candidates for the presidential election, scheduled for November. In addition to the meetings of a political nature which distinguish three personalities, namely the President of the Republic in office, Andry Rajoelina, the former President Marc Ravalomanana who recently announced his candidacy, the President of the African Judo Confederation and deputy of Madagascar elected in the South, Siteny Randrianasoloniako.
The attacks on social networks are also obvious and overwhelmingly overwhelming the two main rivals, Andry Rajoelina and Marc Ravalomanana. They come in particular from their respective militants but also from the supporters of Siteny Randrianasoloniako who overwhelm both parties. The exchanges are very virulent between these militants that a harsher tension is to be feared if this is projected on the ground.
Other potential candidates are also very active in the field but less rowdy in the media. This is particularly the case of Andry Raobelina, owner of several television channels in the capital and former protocol manager of Andry Rajoelina’s Transition, between 2009 and 2013.
Hajo Andrianainarivelo, former Minister of Regional Planning, and founder of the Malagasy Miara Miainga (MMM) party, a possible candidate seems to want to maintain the suspense while multiplying media outlets. Recently, he launched that Andry Rajoelina would no longer be elected in the second round of the next presidential election. In particular, he pointed out the shortcomings of the regime on which he turned his back about a year ago.
