Madagascan gov't dismissed as new president sworn in

Antananarivo, Jan 20: The government led by incumbent Prime Minister Christian Ntsay was dismissed after Andry Rajoelina was sworn in as Madagascan president earlier Saturday, announced Ralala Roger, general secretary of the Madagascan Presidency, reports Xinhua. "Following today's inauguration ceremony and in consideration of necessity, the government has resigned," he said. According to the political convention in Madagascar, the prime minister should resign after the inauguration of a new president to facilitate the nomination of his successor to form a new government. However, the government of Ntsay, who took office in June 2018, needs to work until a new one is officially formed.
