A photo taken on January 15, 2013 in Antananarivo, shows a TV screen displaying Andry Rajoelina, president of the Transition in Madagascar, giving a speech on the Malagasy National TV channel. Madagascar strongman Andry Rajoelina said today that he will not run in crunch presidential elections in May 2013, a decision that could help end a political crisis that erupted when he seized power in 2009. 'I will not be a candidate at the elections, I will sacrifice myself for the sake of the 20 million Malagasy,' he said in a prime-time television address to the nation. Rajoelina had been under fierce international pressure not to run in the polls, as a way to end an almost four-year crisis that has led to a range of sanctions that have crippled the economy.
