ANTANANARIVO, July 17 (Reuters) - Madagascar's finance
minister announced his resignation on Monday following media
speculation over differences of opinion between him and the
president.
    "The conditions enabling me to successfully complete my
mission are not fulfilled," Gervais Rakotoarimanana told a news
conference, without providing any further explanation for his
decision.
    "That's why I handed in my resignation as minister of
finance and budget to the president of the republic on Friday."
