Election Day 2013

Today is election day in Madagascar. This is the first presidential election held since the coup in 2009.

The article linked here explains why no elections have gone ahead yet. This particular one was scheduled for July of this year, but because international funding was pulled from Madagascar from the European Union after they found out that the former president who was ousted was running again, elections were cancelled.

Meanwhile, please pray for a peaceful few weeks after the ballots have been counted. Likely, with +30 electoral candidates, few are expecting anybody will receive over 51% of the votes, therefore a second round will probably ensue come December.

Please pray for fairness, and peace, and that a good leader would be elected in this country!
