Rajoelina fails to impress the E.U.

Madagascar is running out of money, and fast, under the "Haut Autorité Transitoire" (Transitional High Authority; HAT) junta of President Andry Rajoelina. So they tried to plead to the European Union for relief from the sanctions on aid imposed after the overthrow of the Ravalomanana regime...

No luck. For some reason, having a President younger than the constitutionally allowable age for a President of Madagascar (to cite one easy example) plead that progress was being made on returning to constitutional order just didn't exactly impress the folks at Brussels.
