Madagascar leader wins presidential vote, constitutional court says

1/12/2023 18:20
        Madagascar's High Constitutional Court on Friday declared incumbent President Andry Rajoelina as the winner of last month's election, effectively handing him a third term.
        
        Rajoelina got 58.96% of the votes cast, the court said after dismissing various challenges lodged against the provisional results announced by the electoral body.
        
        "Andry Rajoelina is elected as the president of the republic of Madagascar and is taking his functions as soon as the swearing (is conducted)," said Florent Rakotoarisoa, the head of the High constitutional court.
        
        One of the challenges which were dismissed included one from the runner-up, lawmaker Siteny Randrianasoloniaiko, who got 14.39% of the vote according to the court.
        
        Ten out of 13 candidates boycotted the poll but their names were already on the ballot, leaving them to share the rest of the votes cast. Turnout was 46.35%, the court said.
        
        The Nov. 16 election was preceded by weeks of protests with the opposition accusing Rajoelina of having created unfair election conditions.
