How is Madagascar governed?

It is a semi-presidential representative democratic multiparty republic,
which is where a president is elected and appointed head of state and appoints a prime minister to form a government. Its human rights are protected under the constitution, unlike most countries in Africa, but in 2009 the United States Department of State noticed concerns regarding the election process. To add onto that there have been widespread reports regarding limitations on the freedom of the press, child prostitution and labor, and corruption.
