Madagascan President Marc Ravalomanana vowed on Wednesday to restore security and peace in the capital city, which has been in a mass turmoil for over a month.

"I want to inform all Madagascans that I do not accept any more transgression of the law", Ravalomanana said at a government council meeting held here Wednesday morning.

"I ask all Madagascans to respect the law. I will make my best effort to restore the security and peace especially in the capital city," he told the meeting.

According to the private radio, Radio Don Bosco, the president said that all of his visitors this week asked him to take responsibility to restore the peace.

"I will also make my effort to stop all broadcasting of wrong information," he said.

"The armed forces would do their job and I call Madagascans to inform them on the possible robbery and looting in the capital city," he added.

The armed forces and the police sealed off Wednesday all roads to the city center, where the opposition has held anti-government demonstrations since last December, and dispersed supporters of the opposition leader Andry Rajoelina, who tried to force into the May 13 square at the city center.

Rajoelina, who proclaimed to be in charge of the national affairs early last month, called his supporters to go on the general strike on Wednesday.
