The high constitutional court has validated eight of the eleven candidates for the presidential election due to take place on November 25. However, the political situation remains confused in three malagasy provinces, Antsiranana in the north, Twamasina [sic] in the east and Toliary in the south where some supporters of regional rule have proclaimed states. Last Sunday clashes clashes [sic] between federalits [sic] and members of the Force Vive in Tuliara [sic] caused extensive damage. Some people were wounded, and many houses were burnt. About 1000 people are now under the protection of the security forces in the military camps of Tuliara [sic]. In Antananarivo, the capital, there are fuel shortages due to the blockade organized by the federalists in Twamasina [sic], President Didier Ratsiraka's native region which noramlly [sic] provides the capital with fuel. For two days now petrol has been rationed, and there are long queues of cars infront [sic] of petrol pumps. It is in this charged atmosphere that the high constitutional court has officially validated the eight presidential candidates. Among them are the president, Didier ratsiraka [sic], Albert Zafi the leader of the radical wing of the Force Vive, Manadafy Rakopinirin [sic], who leads the moderate wing of the force vive, the poet and writer Jaques [sic] Rabenananjara [sic] who is back in Madagascar after seventeen years abroad. Also approved are Evariste Marson, the minister of finance in the transitional government anf [sic] general secretary of the social democratic party the only woman candidate Russine [sic] Tsiranana, the former Malagasy president's daughter.
