Free and Fair Elections For Madagascar

International observers have described madagascar's presidential election as free and transparent.

Friday polls was the first to be held on the island since coup in 2009.

Preliminary results show that an ally of the ousted leader  Marc Ravalomanana has taken an early lead.

Richard Jean-Loius Robinson has about 30% of the votes so far, while his main rival Henry Martial Rakotoarimanana  Rajaonarimampianina has just over 15%.

Full results could take as long as a week to emerge.

If no candidate receives more than 50% of the votes cast, a second round will be held on 20 December.
