Madagascan leader Andry Rajoelina promulgated the Indian Ocean island state's new constitution on Saturday morning after the recent national referendum amid a mutiny.

Rajoelina, the president of the Highest Transitional Authority (HAT), declared that the Constitution of the IV Republic came into effect after it was adopted in the Nov. 17 national referendum.

The vote was conducted while a group of officers staged a mutiny, which soon failed without affecting the referendum.
