Madagascar leader seeks president's arrest
by UPI

ANTANANARIVO, Madagascar -- Madagascar opposition leader Andry Rajoelina says police and the army should arrest his rival, President Marc Ravalomanana.

Speaking during a rally in the capital Antananarivo on Monday, Rajoelina told supporters, "I ask the army and police and all those who can to carry out the minister of justice's demand, because Andry Rajoelina is impatient to get into office," the France24 news channel reported.

But new army chief Andre Andriarijaona, who is leading soldiers who mutinied Sunday, told the broadcaster that the army would not issue an arrest warrant against President Ravalomanana, saying that is not its role.

Rajoelina has also rejected an offer by Ravalomanana to hold a referendum to solve the political stand-off, telling Madagascar national television, "The referendum is already done. The people have already expressed themselves. There is no need to hold a referendum. The resignation of Ravalomanana is the solution," France24 reported.
