Demonstrations against election results have brought up to half a million people into the streets of Antananarivo almost daily the past two weeks, and such gatherings may continue until mid-April, when results of a run-off election will be announced. Protesters believe the opposition candidate won the initial election free and clear, and many observers agree. The rallies have been largely nonviolent but the potential for violence exists. Transit and banking services have been disrupted and at one point the international airport was closed because workers had joined the strike. Expect delays traveling anywhere in the country.
