Description of Work:
Ramiaramanana was named President of the Special Delegation of Antananarivo, the capital of Madagascar, to replace Marc Ravalomanana in 2001. He was appointed chairman of the board of the state electricity and water company, Jirama, in October 2003, and soon afterward, on October 16, he publicly announced his anticipated candidacy for Mayor of Antananarivo. As the candidate of the ruling Tiako I Madagasikara (TIM), was elected Mayor in the municipal election held on November 23, 2003; his victory had been expected. In 2006 he was the tenth-placed finalist for World Mayor. He stepped down as Mayor when he was appointed as Minister of Energy in the government of Prime Minister Charles Rabemananjara named on January 25, 2007. Ramiaramanana ran as a TIM candidate for a seat in the National Assembly of Madagascar from the Antananarivo I constituency in the September 2007 parliamentary election and, along with his fellow TIM candidate for the constituency, Arinosy Jacques Razafimbelo, he won by a large margin with 61.21% of the vote, according to provisional results. Following the election, in the government named on October 27, 2007, Ramiaramanana was moved from his position as Minister of Energy to that of Minister of Sports, Culture, and Leisure.
