Background: Formerly an independent kingdom , Madagascar became a French colony in 1896 but regained independence in 1960. During 1992-93 , free presidential and National Assembly elections were held ending 17 years of single-party rule. In 1997 , in the second presidential race , Didier RATSIRAKA , the leader during the 1970s and 1980s , was returned to the presidency. The 2001 presidential election was contested between the followers of Didier RATSIRAKA and Marc RAVALOMANANA , nearly causing secession of half of the country. In April 2002 , the High Constitutional Court announced RAVALOMANANA the winner. RAVALOMANANA is now in his second term following a landslide victory in the generally free and fair presidential elections of 2006.
