1 Conscription

conscription exists

Madagascar has conscription, which is enshrined in art. 19 of the constitution. [1] [3] [4]

According to the government in 1980, "Compulsory national service is organised to ensure the social and cultural development of the majority, in addition to the requirements of national defence" (arts. 19 and 20 of the constitution). [1]

The present legal basis of conscription is believed to be the 6 March 1978 Order No. 78-003 on national service.
