      ANTANANARIVO | For decades, the Malagasy economy has been hanging on a spider web. Rampant corruption in the government motivated by weak law enforcement and judicial court, as well as a negligible infrastructure base are the main impediments to economic development, acknowledged by the international community and President Andry Rajoelina. Attempting to stamp out the significant, core issue, corruption, the national Parliament answered to this issue by passing two bills; the first provided a legal basis to the establishment of the Corruption Extinctification Ministry; the second established budget transparency.

      The Ministry of Corruption Extinctification announced this morning sets its aim to combat and eradicate corruption in all governmental levels, including the court. However the effectiveness of this ministry in carrying out the tasks within its capacity is doubted by the populous. Many contended that the passing of the bill itself is a sign that the ministry was established as a mere morale booster. Only time will tell.

      Kumandjoe was appointed by President Andry directly as the first head of the ministry.
