Madagascar opposition says united against coup president

Madagascar's three main opposition camps are united in their determination to implement a power-sharing deal and no longer recognise the authority of President Andry Rajoelina, a former president said on Sunday.

The three groups met on Sunday to agree a common position after rejecting the new government Rajoelina unilaterally formed this week, saying it flouted the deal signed in Maputo, Mozambique last month.

"The three movements will stick together to implement the Maputo accords," former President Albert Zafy said after the meeting. "If there's more unrest it won't be because of us."

Then opposition leader Rajoelina spearheaded a campaign of street protests and eventually ousted President Marc Ravalomanana with the help of army in March.
