Madagascar Army Opposed to Former Ruler Ravalomanana’s Return

June 14 (Bloomberg) -- Madagascar’s army and police are opposed to Marc Ravalomanana, the exiled former president, returning to the country, said Andre Ndriarijaona, the head of the army in the Indian Ocean island nation.

The army and police are “strongly opposed” to the immediate return of Ravalomanana as it may cause unrest, Ndriarijaona told reporters today in the capital, Antananarivo.

A summit of Southern African Development Community heads of state agreed on June 12 that Ravalomanana, ousted by President Andry Rajoelina with the help of the army in 2009, should be allowed to return to the country before elections.
