Algeria: who will take over from Bouteflika

Abdelaziz Bouteflika submitted his resignation last Tuesday as President of the Democratic and Popular Republic of Algeria.

This resignation, which the Algerian people demanded with all their wishes and obtained thanks to the peaceful demonstrations that all the cities of the neighboring country knew, opened the democratic appetite of the Algerians.

Thus, it is the departure of all the leaders of the system set up by the now ex-president who is the leitmotif of the Algerian street. The president of the Council of the Nation, the upper house of the Algerian Parliament, seems best placed to take over. But Abdelkader Bensalah is among the political figures that the Algerian people no longer want because embodying, too, the system hated by the protesters.

According to Algerian Media, it seems that the option Abdelkader Bensalah will not be appropriate. The current president of the Council of the Nation who, according to the Constitution must ensure the interim, “the moment when the current figure does not seem to be tolerated by the popular movement”, he should find him a successor, says the media.

But the question that remains unanswered is: “Who will be this consensual man who has the makings of a head of state?” An imbroglio that may change the situation since Ahmed Gaïd Salah does not want to quarrel. Indeed, the chief of state-major demands that the succession of the ex-president be done within the framework of the Constitution.

What does the post-Bouteflika presage? This means that before the expiry of the 90 days to appoint a new president, the exit of the Algerian hostel is not for tomorrow the day before!
