The animals of Madagascar found plentiful foodstuffs, and an almost total lack of predators. Because evolutionary pressures on Madagascar's early inhabitants were almost nonexistent, the island literally teems with life forms that have changed little in hundreds of thousands, even millions of years. In many ways, Madagascar is literally a land that time forgot.
Unfortunately for many of these creatures, the arrival of man represented their first encounter with a predator. It took almost 1,000 years, but skilled human hunters managed to drive almost two dozen of those unique and irreplaceable animal species to extinction. Although they lived in tribes, the African, Indian, and Arabic races managed to avoid segregation. Over many hundreds of years, an incredible synthesis of tradition, religion, language, and genetics took place, creating a society remarkable in its uniformity of language and beliefs, and striking in its physical beauty. In 1500, Portugese explorers landed on the island of Madagascar, did a little exploration, and returned to Europe. Word of the Portugese "discovery" spread to France and England, and both countries rushed to establish settlements on the island. The local tribes formed loose coalitions to succesfully defend themselves against the invading Europeans again and again.

History and Government
A gradual civilianisation of the Government culminated in 1977 in elections to the National People's Assembly, which were won by the sole legal party, Avant-garde de la Révolution Malgache
Ratsiraka was defeated by a professor of medicine, Albert Zafy, representing the Comité des Forces Vives (CFV). Zafy ended the final year of his term under threat of impeachment for alleged breaches of the constitution, and with the Madagascan economy in desperate straits following the failure of negotiations on an IMF/World bank support package. Zafy was, however, allowed to stand at the ensuing presidential election in November 1996, but narrowly lost to Ratsiraka. In the latest parliamentary elections of 17 May 1998, AREMA gained a convincing victory; Tantely Andrianarivo assumed the premiership. The next presidential elections are scheduled for November 2001.
Government: Under the terms of a new constitution adopted by popular referendum in August 1992, legislative power resides in a bicameral legislature, comprising a partially-elected Senate and fully-elected National Assembly, each of which has a four-year term. Council of Ministers appointed by the Prime Minister. The President is elected by popular vote for a five-year term. The Prime Minister is appointed by the President from a list of candidates nominated by the National Assembly. Executive power rests with the prime minister.

    Madagascar's population is predominantly of mixed Asian and African
    origin. Recent research suggests that the island was uninhabited until
    Indonesian seafarers arrived in roughly the first century A.D.,
    probably by way of southern India and East Africa, where they acquired
    African wives and slaves. Subsequent migrations from both the Pacific
    and Africa further consolidated this original mixture, and 18 separate tribal groups emerged. Asian features are most predominant in the central highlands people, the Merina (2 million) and the Betsileo (1 million); the coastal people are of African origin. The largest coastal groups are the Betsimisaraka (1 million) and the Tsimihety and Sakalava (500,000 each). The Malagasy language is of Malayo-Polynesian origin and is generally spoken throughout the island. French also is spoken among the educated of this former French colony. Most people practice traditional religions, which tend to emphasize

    The history of Madagascar
    The first settlers
    According to one theory, peoples from the Indonesian archipelago migrated along the coast of south Asia, across the Arabian Peninsula into the east coast of Africa and, finally, across the Mozambique Channel into present-day Madagascar. This movement started some 1500 years ago and occurred over several generations. The Malay-Polynesian sailors eventually settled in the central highlands. The arrival of African peoples occurred later and was a result of normal migrational trends and the rise of the slave trade. The gradual interaction between Asian and African populations resulted in a distinct Malagasy people and culture.
    The Colonial Period
    In 1642 the French gained a foothold on the island. However, their influence was unstable until 1896, when, as a result of popular uprisings, Madagascar was proclaimed a colony of France and military rule was instituted. Under the provisions of the French constitution of 1946, the island became an overseas territory of France. During the 1950s France took measures to increase self-government on the island, and in the late 1950s a congress made up of the members of the provincial councils proclaimed Madagascar, renamed the Malagasy Republic, a semiautonomous member of the French Community.
    The Post-Colonial Period
    On June 26, 1960, the republic became fully autonomous while retaining a cordial association with France. Later that year it was admitted to the United Nations (UN). After a decade of political stability, Malagasy experienced serious unrest in the early 1970s. On December 30, 1975, the country was renamed the Democratic Republic of Madagascar, and the following month Lieutenant Commander Didier Ratsiraka was named president. After massive antigovernment demonstrations, Ratsiraka promised to institute democratic reforms. A new constitution was approved in August 1992. Albert Zafy defeated Ratsiraka in a presidential runoff election in February 1993. The National Assembly voted to impeach Zafy after he promoted a 1995 referendum that expanded presidential power while it lessened the assembly's authority. In early 1997 former president Ratsiraka was victorious in presidential elections.
