The multilateral negotiations atcarlton failed in reaching agreement. In fact, all parties ( the Rajoelina group, the Ravalomanana group, the Ratsiraka group and the Zafy group) have not succeeded to make concessions. The purpose of the negotiations which are led by the international mediators is to establish a neutral, consensual, and peaceful transition in Madagascar. The High Transitional Authority does not accept the general amnesty which is asked by the other groups.
Apart from the establishment of a neutral, consensual, and peaceful transition, the following points have to be discused at the negotiating table:
– The participation of the former presidents in the next presidential election,
– The organization of a credible presidential election at the earliest date possible.
– A general amnesty
The international mediators(the African Union, the Southern African Development Community, The United Nations) call all parties to reach agreement, and conclude the negotiations in order to resolve the current political crisis in Madagascar.
