Rajoelina refuses to step down

It looks like my first impression, that Antananarivo mayor Andry Rajoelina would fade into the background, was not entirely accurate. Reuters reports that the major vows to continue his fight against President Ravalomanana.
"The people of Antananarivo who elected Andry Rajoelina will not let this be. The people will not allow the government to ridicule their choice," Rajoelina told supporters outside his old office.
However, the article also states that only a few hundred gathered to support Rajoelina at his latest rally, compared to the few thousand he had attracted as recently as last week, so we may be seeing the end of this conflict yet.
