Court in Madagascar disqualifies Head of State from standing in the presidential Election scheduled for this Friday

The electoral court in Madagascar has disqualified incumbent President Andry Rajoelina and two other high-profile candidates from standing in the presidential election to be held this coming Friday. In a ruling announced on Sunday, the court said Rajoelina submitted his papers late. The other two are former first lady Lalao Ravalomanana and former head of state Didier Ratsiraka. The court said they had not lived in Madagascar for the required six month period before their nominations. Both had been living in exile until May this year. Rajoelina came to power in 2009, backed by the military which had overthrown Marc Ravalomanana.
