Madagascar: Political rivals reach power-sharing agreement

Political leaders in Madagascar have agreed on posts with a transitional government that will hold power until next year’s elections following a power struggle that brought months of instability to the country, an African Union statement said. The Saturday agreement was made among ousted President Marc Ravalomanana, current President Andry Rajoelina, who took over power in March, and former presidents Didier Ratsiraka and Albert Zafy, writes CNN. Under the deal, Rajoelina will remain head of state president along with two new co-presidents representing other political factions on the Indian Ocean island off the southeast coast of Africa.
