Yearbook 2001

Madagascar. According to Countryaah, Parliament's first chamber, the Senate, was reinstated after several years of residence. Only mayors and members of provincial assemblies were allowed to take part in the election of 60 members, and the House was largely dominated by the Arema government. President Didier Ratsiraka appointed another 30 members.

In the presidential election that took place in December, surprising company manager Marc Ravalomanana received the most votes in the first round. Ravalomanana, who is also mayor of the capital Antananarivo, got just over 46% against 40% for President Ratsiraka. The result meant that the election had to be decided in a second round of 2002.
