Towards a CFM in good working condition

Verfasst von

Who is the real expert of national reconciliation?

Recently the newly selected members of the ‘Council of Fampihavanana Malgagsy’ (CFM; Council of National Reconciliation) did benefit from a formation by experts. The aim was to get a balanced level of knowledge within the mostly new 33 council-members concerning the future field of work, i.e. the work of reconciliation.

However, while such idea seems generally well-founded, in view of the different background of the members, such procedure entails nonetheless some contradictions. Were the members of the CFM not chosen exactly because they are already experts in this field? And who are then the experts invited for sharing their particularly well accepted knowledge of reconciliation? Would it not have been useful, in a sense, to select just these latter experts of higher level to perform the task for which one has just the experts of second or inferior level? Such arguments, put forward by the journalist Aina Bovel (see below), might seem at first scholastic but hints to a potential weakness of the selection process, to be discussed more in detail.

Whatever the outcome of such questions will be, the formation is certainly another step to get the CFM finally to start the mandate in good working condition. Another ongoing step is the visit in the main six parts (formerly provinces) of the island, with the journey of the CFM to Fianarantsoa already completed, and more travelling to Majunga and Vakinankaratra scheduled for the near future.  It will be interested to know more about the first confrontation of the CFM-members with local or regional problems.
