Madagascar is the 4th largest Island country in the world, located in East Africa. In 2018, the country’s leadership changed hands from President
Hery Rajaonarimampianina to President Andry Rajoelina. Madagascar is listed on Olatorera.com as one of the Top 5 Poorest countries in the world. With only 431 candidates running for parliament seats in Madagascar in 2019, the number is at least 4 times less than the number of candidates from the previous elections. Madagascar’s parliament consists of 184 seats. 151 seats belong to the lower parliament – House of Assembly. 33 seats belong to the upper parliament – the senate.
Why Are Few Candidates Running For 2019 Parliament Seats?
- Less campaign finances within the country
- Many potential candidates do not believe in the democratic process installed in Madagascar. They believe the country is running a dictatorship government rather than a democratic one.
- Many applications were rejected as late applications by the Independent National Electoral Commission.
