Madagascar rivals agree on cabinet posts in unity government

rajoelina 01

Madagascar's four political rivals have agreed on posts in a new unity government. Earlier the International Contact Group for Madagascar resumed talks to end the nation's political crisis after a deal signed in August to form an interim government came unstuck when the island's leader Andry Rajoelina unilaterally decided on a cabinet. Under the agreement, Rajoelina, who came to power in a March coup, remains president. The African Union commission chief, Jean Ping who also heads the contact group, says there is no alternative to a unity government. The ICG includes former Mozambican president Joaquim Chissano, and representatives from the UN, the Indian Ocean Commission, the EU, France and the US.
