Madagascar president, Andry Rajoelina announced that he was not going to run for president again after ruling the country for just three years.
President Rajoelina made the announcement on Tuesday saying he would not run again in the country’s next elections which are supposed to take place in May this year. He bowed to international pressure which wanted him to give the country a new start.
President Rajoelina came to power in a coup in 2009 which ousted Marc Ravalomanana as the country’s president. He is also a former disc jockey.
