Two former presidents of Madagascar, Andry Rajoelina and Marc Ravalomanana, will face each other in a run-off election next month to decide who will lead the large Indian Ocean island nation, the country's top court announced on Wednesday.

The run-off comes after neither candidate won the 50% of votes required for a first-round victory on November 7, with Rajoelina receiving 39.23% and Ravalomanana 35.35%, according to the final results released by the Constitutional Court.

The new round of voting is due on December 19.
