Andry Nirina Rajoelina (Malagasy [ˈʲaɳɖʐʲ nʲˈrinə̥ radzoˈelə̥]) (born May 30, 1974)[1] is a Malagasy politician and television and radio station owner.[2] Rajoelina dissolved Madagascar's parliament, changed the high court judges and swore himself in as transitional head of state of Madagascar on March 21, 2009, having been installed in that position by the military at the end of a political crisis.[3] Rajoelina was Mayor of Antananarivo, the capital of Madagascar, from December 2007 to February 2009.[4] While serving as Mayor, he strongly opposed President Marc Ravalomanana, ultimately leading protests that, together with military intervention, resulted in Ravalomanana's resignation. He was one of the youngest current heads of state in the world and the youngest head of state in Africa. His position has been challenged in a military coup attempt on 17-18 November 2010.
