Today, pro TGV had met again at the Place du 13 Mai.

Last Thursday, Andry Rajoelina promised a big “free” concert with Rossy. But finally, this famous singer, well known as follower of the former President Didier Ratsiraka, could not do the trip to Madagascar. In fact, Rossy could quit France (where he lives now after the strike of 2002) to join La Réunion. Since all flight to Madagascar have been cancelled and no private airplanes agreed to pick him up, Rossy missed the meeting of pro TGV today.

Andry Rajoelina proclaimed himself as the President of the High Authority of the Transition. He promised change, democracy, alternation of the gov, reduction of price of basic foods mainly price of rice and oil…

The  Priminister of the transition gov is Monja Roindefo, son of Monja Jaona, and President of MONIMA (Madagasikara Otronin’ny Malagasy). This “Priminister” promised to achieve the same goals as his leader Andry Rajoelina.

Le MONIMA reste-t-il dans l’opposition ?

- « Comme vous dites. Nous n’avons jamais soutenu Marc Ravalomanana. Moi personnellement, j’ai toujours milité à côté des farouches opposants à ce régime pour contester la façon dont on gère le pays depuis 2002 ».

Is MONIMA still in the opposition side?

-” As you say. We have never supported Marc Ravalomanana. Me personally, I always campaigned next to the shy opponents in this regime to protest  the way of managing of  the country since 2002.”

(from Madagascar Tribune in an interview of  Tsimiondra Thomas, member of MONIMA, on March 8th, 2008 )

At 1.00 p.m, Andry Rajoelina invited his followers to take back the Palace of Ambohitsirohitra which is the Commune Urbaine d’Antananarivo’s property then the population of Madagascar’s. Monja Roindefo led the population to Ambohitsirohitra.

Let me inform you that this Palace of Ambohitsirohitra is the current President Marc Ravalomanana’s residence.
