Madagascar president nominates Ntsay as new PM   

ANTANANARIVO Madagascar (Xinhua) -- Madagascar’s president Hery Rajaonarimampianina on Monday named Christian Ntsay as the country’s new prime minister.

Former Prime Minister Olivier Mahafaly Solonandrasana announced his resignation Monday following a decision by the High Constitutional Court last week asking him to resign in seven days.

Ntsay was the fourth prime minister nominated by Rajaonarimampianina after he became the Malagasy president in 2014.

The nomination was declared by Rajaonarimampianina in a presidential statement to the nation. “This result of the nomination is an achievement of the political consensus with the opposition,” he said.

Rajaonarimampianina also said the outgoing government will take charge of the day-to-day business until a new government is in place.

Ntsay was the former director of the International Labor Organization for Madagascar, Comoros, Mauritius and Seychelles.

Solonandrasana announces resignation

ANTANANARIVO Madagascar (Xinhua) -- Madagascar’s Prime Minister Olivier Mahafaly Solonandrasana announced his resignation Monday morning after the decision of the High Constitutional Court last week which asked him to resign in seven days.

“I resign from my position freely without problem. I will send to President Hery Rajaonarimampianina my resignation,” the prime minister said during his press meeting Monday.

Solonandrasana said that the reason of his resignation is the decision of the High Constitutional Court (HCC), which decided to create a new government of consensus.

“I agree without objection this decision of the HCC and I put my resignation to facilitate it,” Solonandrasana added.

The prime minister said he always looked for solidarity among the Malagasy people.

Solonandrasana, 53, was appointed prime minister on April 10, 2016 to replace Jean Ravelonarivo.
