Madagascar prime minister, cabinet resign

By on April 8, 2016

Madagascar Prime Minister Jean Ravelonarivo and his cabinet have resigned, an official at the president’s office said on Friday without giving an explanation.

“The president has accepted the resignation of (the) prime minister and all members of the government (…) The current members of the government are dealing with current business until the appointment of new members of the government,” Roger Ralala, secretary general of the presidency, said in a statement.

Ravelonarivo took office in January 2015 after public frustration with power cuts, rampant unemployment and a stagnant economy forced out the previous administration.

Madagascar has struggled to rebuild itself since a 2009 coup that scared off donors and foreign investment.
