AFP - The Southern African Development Community (SADC) said Tuesday it "rejects and condemns" the formation of a new government in Madagascar and maintained the island nation's suspension from the regional grouping.

"The (SADC) summit firmly rejects and condemns the unilateral decision" of Madagascar's transitional president Andry Rajoelina, who formed his government and kept his prime minister in spite of protests by other political parties, a final statement said.

The grouping's executive secretary Thomaz Augusto Salomao, who read the statement, added: "The summit upholds its decision to suspend Madagascar from the (SADC) until constitutional normality has returned to the country."

Rajoelina earlier Tuesday unveiled a 31-minister "unity government" lineup which has been rejected by the opposition and international mediators.
