Madagascar Rivals End Election Impasse

April 19, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

Madagascar's rival presidential candidates came to an accord to end an election impasse.

The accord, which was reached in the Senegalese capital, Dakar, through mediation, commits incumbent President Didier Ratsiraka and challenger Marc Ravalomanana to awaiting the outcome of a court-ordered recount of the disputed Dec. 16 election.

If neither man emerges with a clear majority, Ratsiraka--with a prime minister agreed upon by both--would preside over an interim government for six months.
