The Winding Path towards Presidential Elections.
Number: 4
Date: 2019-10-23
Author: Mohamed Al-Sbitli


The Political _Hirak_ Movement in Algeria continues its usual activities between an authority moving strongly toward the 12th of December election, and a civil society that is too reluctant. Despite the numerous arrests of highly ranked figures amongst the mobilizers, the authority still finds it difficult to subdue the movement. On the other hand, moderate and radical opposition finds it difficult to regain the initiative from the authorities. So in front of these generally peaceful confrontations between the government and civil and political activists, the fate of the election remains unclear. Would the authority venture and go to elections that might face high boycott rate, and might lack popular legitimacy? Or would it step back and respond to some of the demands of the political movement, like the full departure of the former regime?
