Heavy task for Christian Ntsay
Form a consensus Government and carry out the electoral elections. This is the heavy task of the new Prime minister, Christian Ntsay, whose name was revealed yesterday by the President of the Republic, Hery Rajaonarimampianina, at the Palace of Mahazoarivo.
Heavy task, indeed. Population, the deputies of change, the civil society but also the international community, await the constitution of the new government with impatience and rigor. The plan will no longer be entitled to the error.
The deputies of change affirm that the fight continues, even if the demonstrations on the place of May 13 ended. These are the words of the deputy Brunel Razafitsiandraofa yesterday, on the set of the private channel Viva. On the other hand, civil society organizations are also putting pressure on the new Prime minister.
“We consider that, despite a lack of respect for democratic principles and a lack of inclusiveness in the current approach to the appointment, the newly appointed Prime Minister, namely Mr. Christian Ntsay is a technician, not tainted politically and able to establish a government and an impartial way of working. We wish him every success in his heavy responsibility and continue to mobilize the leaders, political leaders and other actors to promote the participation of all in this kind of decision.”
This is the statement from the press release of the Rohy Madagascar movement, which held a press conference this afternoon in Ambatonakanga.
Government of “consensus”
After his nomination, Christian Ntsay has seven days to build a “consensus” government. It is about establishing an impartial government of honest and competent technicians. But also to lead the elections impartially, while leaving unequivocal independence to responsible institutions, such as Ceni. Requirements listed by the Rohy Madagascar Movement.
For opposition MPs, but also the international community, it is about conducting transparent elections and rejecting all forms of corruption.
The Malagasy population also expects a “transparent” government, if you will, from this nominationt. Politicians who will fight more for the good of the population than for the “seza”(1).
In all these conditions, it is expected that the heads of the old Mahafaly regime will fall. See you in seven days.
