Madagascar: Opposition Steps up Pressure Against President

For the 15th day running, opposition parliamentarians and protesters in Madagascar on May 5, 2018 took to the streets to demand the resignation of President Hery Rajaonarimampianina after Parliament recently voted three electoral laws adjudged to be to the detriment of opposition presidential candidates. Though the Higher Constitutional Court on May 3, 2018 scrapped some provisions of the new laws, the opposition still insists on the resignation of the President, the author of the changes. The protests, which began April 21, 2018 with small numbers in the capital, Antananarivo, over the weekend spread to the provinces with tens of thousands taking part.
