Madagascar minister of finance resigns
Madagascar’s finance minister announced his resignation yesterday, citing a lack of support and differing points of view. While Gervais Rakotoarimanana did not identify who was behind the rift, media outlets have speculated over differences between him and the president, Hery Rajaonarimampianina. Rakotoarimanana said he submitted his resignation to the president on Friday, blaming a “lack of support” for his decision to quit. “There was also a different point of view and difference between methods of work,” he told a news conference.
