The Algerian Way: elections greeted with apathy and scepticism

Ask Algerians about their parliamentary elections and they’ll talk about "le pouvoir", the murky military-backed clans that pull the strings of power. François Picard’s panel weighs in on why elections may not matter just yet in an oil and gas-rich nation wary of Arab Spring protests against inequality.

  • Malek SERRAI. Chairman of the Algerian International Consult; Former advisor to Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika (from Algiers);
  • Philipp NAYLOR. Historian, Marquette University (from Wisconsin, USA);
  • Amel BOUBEKEUR. Research Fellow, ENS and EHESS;
  • Eve IRVINE. France 24 Special Correspondent in Algiers.

Produced by François Picard, Anelise Borges, Mary Colombel, Christopher Davis.

Watch the second part here.
