Elections in countries that are controlled by military and civilian lobbies raise many questions about the possibility of their integrity or even their legitimacy … But those who know Algeria well are aware that the reluctance of citizens to vote was the clearest evidence of the state of civil disobedience and the great rift between the Authority and the people in Algeria … Not to mention corruption, unemployment and the enormous wealth controlled by those gangs in a small circle and between groups is reflected negatively on the citizen, his income, his living condition, his opportunities of employment after graduation and his public life … Algeria, like other countries that were not affected by the Arab spring is in need of a radical change that removes the greedy ones with swollen bellies and saves this disabled system that is corrupt politically and administratively … It is essential for democracy to have foundations of justice and separation of powers, national and social security in order for the citizen to express his opinion freely and without fear of punishment, marginalization or neglect … Mr. Ahmed Ould Otafal Mauritanian journalist resident in the United States
The results demonstrate that Algerian people consider Islamists as “all bark but no bite”, and that “Islamists” have to be understood in another way and treated like mere highway bandits. We have come a long way from the 7th century invasion, and now we have to live harmoniously with our neighbours and friends, we should think about the construction of the AMU, the education of the new generations, so that they can live in the best conditions as well as participate more actively in the construction of the country, and we should allow managers, executives and others living abroad to come back to their homeland and to contribute to make a fresh start on development. Ahmed KADDOUR
For Algerian people, the result means that security and peace are paramount. We need time to achieve the peaceful change. An ordinary Algerian woman.
The Algerian people is a sovereign people, they are NOT the subjects of anybody! If the UN, the EEC, the Hebrew league, the AU and the ICO, as well as the USA, Fafa and QATAR!!! ARE SATISFIED, do you really believe that our BEARDED MEN and other kinds of alcoholic losers’ OPINION will make a difference for any change?! EXCEPT for your newspaper, which LOVES to see or hear that Algeria is on fire! Of course this will be censured! As always, you are imposing your truth.
No…nothing to mention…or as they say no event

Through the careful reading of Zawaya writers, I see that the rule is to stick to a geographical area. It is done without reckoning with the reality of the political, social and economic conditions which distinguish Algeria from the rest of the Maghreb; that is, it is done without regard to the overall changes taking place, even if Algeria has unique features. Algeria experienced radical changes during the period of independence that touched all popular categories. It was the leader in carrying out constitutional work after fighting for nearly a century and a quarter of a century on its own. It did not care for the conditional support of our brothers; this empowered Algeria to reach excellence in its political development and its ability to confront the French forces of evil within a purely political framework. During the unilateral ideological approach, mouths were not shut to the extent that we have seen in the Arab region. By returning to documents, folders and minutes of meetings, we find that diversity of thought and subjective discourse indicated a sense of freedom of expression in spite of the limited horizon. At the party level, there were innovative ideas that could be contrary to the text or the document, but served the general spirit of the political theses of the State. The first three decades of independence were characterized by a type of political contraction, which was tied to the objectives of the Project of the National Public. In 1976, the National Charter was a curriculum followed by the State, where all participated in a dialogue that was not possible in neighbouring countries. This dialogue covered issues ranging from Islam to socialism to individual liberty, education and the project of a community in terms of identity and citizenship, and its other components. This was no small feat considering that the percentage of illiteracy in 1962 was more than 95 percent. After the completion of the first three decades of independence, Algeria entered a stage where it was a pioneer in the rapid acceptance of change following the demise of bipolarity and the transformation of the world to unilateralism. No wonder that a regional force like Algeria would be affected by power shifts, which made headway whether in a positive or negative way toward currents and growth of ideas with different sources and references. The important fact is that the country’s democracy saw the emergence of parties from the right and the left, and also Islamic-oriented parties — especially the Muslim Brotherhood with the FIS.
Among which some in the crucible of what is known as the Islamic Salvation Front FIS
It entered local and state elections and accounted for more than 50 percent of the seats. Then the curtailed flight and the legislations which led to the tragedy that befell the country and the people and decimated green and dry and neighbors. Our eastern brothers are issuing religious edicts authorizing this and providing support in humanitarian form sometimes and Islamic at other times in the name of scientific Salafism. This salafism is nested in the Holy Sites. Today the elections are conducted without falling into the trap of fallacies played by the Arab spring in Algeria. But we, dear readers and if you are honest, must understand that the people in Algeria will not be instigated by foreign oppressive forces regardless of our differences. You must understand that the current Muslim Brotherhood does not have the geographic reach that was cheered by so many. The Muslim Brotherhood trend punished itself when it connived with the system in the alliance. The Islamic discourse of all factions, has become boring to the general public. The Brotherhood movement in Tunisia or Morocco or Libya was not tested by the people yet. Writers should distance themselves from talking about matters outside their geographical area and the advice is of no value if the request is not coming from those who need advice as per brother Ghannouchi
Long live Algeria
Liberation Front, we are committed to you, be my witness, be my witness, be my witness. It was, still is and will remain forever
Elections are rigged 100 percent
The elections are rigged
Algeria is the strong country of the Arab nation. We are the children of Algeria and are proud of it and thank God we were not affected by the financial crisis.
That is good.
The elections in Algeria, which left the mighty party victorious with an outcome that they didn’t dream of, 50 per cent stipulated in the electoral law. It pushed away the political parties that do not appear except during elections and then disappear and reappear again in another alection, and so it has no effect on the political scene. As for the other parties, which oscillate between the government and the oppositio,n especially Hamas, their defeat was expected because Algerians discovered their games. The party of Ouyahia has taken another slap in the face; if it has any pride it would withdraw from the political arena. The reason being that they mocked Algerians during most of their interventions in the electoral campaign. After this, nothing will change in the political arena as long as the military are the real rulers

In the name of God the Merciful. I was hoping not to get involved in this dialogue, because the internal affairs of a beloved neighbour is a matter of sovereignty. The little contradictory information, which I picked up were not enough to give us the courage of an opinion, or a corret opinion backed by proof. So I say again, the discourses were not free from ideologies, lobbies and power. The game of democracy has its shortcomings and as long as the ballot boxes cannot speak they will inevitably result in controversial outcomes, study and be glorified too. With regard to the post-election period, I have read a bold comment that was not without great rejoice of nationalism and patriotism, raising the height of my dreams. Then I said, when will the nation be larger than what we dream for? When will our nation be cherished by those who love us and can fill our gaps and protect our lands and honours? I will feel more proud when I see the barriers between the brothers knocked down and I can enter the land of my ancestors regardless of the documents made available to me to enjoy this right or this generosity. We were people of pride before we were expelled from our palaces that are still statuesque, palaces whose soil we do not dream of smelling. Who among us can tell me about my right with regard to that dream and who can give me hope… give me the dream of crossing the tens of kilometers which prevent me from entering the land of my ancestors and just smelling its soil. Until this great event takes place. May God preserve the elections of the sister states. We look forward to prospects higher than names and to heroes who can carve their names in the pages of history as they break the boundaries made by colonialism. Colonialism had a careful plan to sow sedition and discord. We ended up holding to the yard and coveting another one and we increased the thickness of the boundary separating us and made it taller.

I don’t find it embarrassing to admit that I do not know much about what is going on in Algeria. As a matter of fairness I tried to commit myself to follow the events via Algerian media channels in order to understand. Yet, I was frustrated and tired of the performance of the media, which I think contributes greatly to the blackout. This reminds me of the communist methods or that the elite media in Algeria is not following a methodology or a unified vision and that they may be linked to internal agendas and power centers. When I compare the Algerian media with the Libyan media after the revolution, I find a far cry between them. The Libyan media, despite its youth in light of the revolution, is maneuvering in a larger space and dictates to reality it’s uniqueness in freedom. What I see however, with regard to the Algerian elections by virtue of the modest participation of Algerians and their reluctance that is striking, I say in short: The elections will not change a lot and will bring nothing new, either at the local nor at the regional level. I’m sorry if my opinion does not appeal to our brothers in Algeria, but my solace is that I honestly love Algeria.
Peace be upon you and the mercy of Allah. The topic of unemployment should be addressed and we should also alleviate its repercussions by all means
The elections are rigged par excellence, and we know that very well but we are powerless in the present moment and we are not waiting for fair ones to come. We know that they apply the policy of (they only show us what they themselves see), although this policy was applied in the past via the use of the iron fist by the oppressor himself: the Pharaoh of Moses. Despite the futility of this policy, they are redoing it again after 2012 years since the birth of Prophet Jesus, peace be upon him, and centuries and centuries after the crushing of the tyrant Pharaoh, curse be upon him. By doing this they are behaving like those who wronged themselves and it’s self-evident that their fate will be to be crushed like their ancestors. They are using the excuse that the global and regional situations are forcing them to be fraudulent and they forgot that the Algerian liberation revolution succeeded, despite the grave situation that surrounded it from all sides. Its success was due to its faith in Allah and Jihad and upholding the Word of God above dictators and tyrants. It’s by God that vulnerable peoples succeed (If ye help Allah, He will help you and will make your foothold firm.)
No comment. Everything is clear and understood
Those who don’t reach the grapes claim they are bitter and the shrewd understands what I mean. Long live Algeria and glory and eternity to the martyrs of the war of independence. Radhwane from Algeria
Surprising to hear some say that the elections were rigged, given that there were representatives of the political parties in every polling stations and centres. One should participate and follow before criticising.
Anonymous, the elections were 100 percent rigged

The Algerian elections were free and fair and the FLN deserves it, five in your eyes(may the evil eye return to you)
If only we could understand each other.
I think that Algerians are not mature enough to choose their destiny… Alas, that’s the truth. Nevertheless, the FLN party that won the majority of seats should behave properly by being fair and equitable, seeking the national interest, putting dinosaurs and bloodsuckers into retirement, applying economic and political reforms, opening up to the global economy, being very competitive, launching a large-scale privatization program, generalizing the program of national integration, training young people in all fields…and most importantly under the current circumstances, it has to ensure stability and avoid falling in the trap of Islamists.
Long live Algeria, period!
Do you know why Algerians voted like that? How would you explain the facts that the secretary general of a party was an ambassador of Algeria, that a party was a member of the government for a long time, and that a party’s secretary took part in four mandates of the PNA? At the end of this explanation, Algerians are not stupid to the point of…….. I’ll let you finish my thought. “Be reasonable, o peoples of the Arab Spring”. Dear neighbours, please beware and avoid feelings in these cases because the Europeans are on the lookout for any opportunities. Thank you.
We Algerians do not understand anything. Everyone is pulling to his side instead of seeking the national interest.
For God’s sake, leave us alone! I am a free Algerian.
Mr. President, I don’t know what the Constitution says about the election of the NPA’s President, but he must be elected by a secret ballot. The current NPA President was elected, like usual, through raising hands, which is abnormal. Therefore, this assembly took off by failing to comply with the wishes of the people.
We love this homeland, but we don’t like its leaders, because they are corrupt and falsification is crystal clear.
The Algerian elections went smoothly and with integrity. Algeria is an Arab country and part of the Arab nation. We praise Allah the Almighty because we weren’t affected by the economic crisis, which we do not need at all.
In response to the claims that the Algerian people are still not convinced of the ability of Islamists to take over power, I say that Algerians are a great nation.
Elections in Algeria are fair and democratic. I belong to the DNA, and if there was any fraud, the DNA and its Secretary-General who is the Prime Minister, would have benefited from it. Islamists are claiming that there was fraud, but that’s not true, because the people made their choice. Algerians experienced the Islamist rule in 1990, had tried them in local elections which are very close to citizens, and saw how the Islamists separated them. Algeria is a Muslim country. We feel hurt when someone says that Islamists are in Algeria, after they won only 60 seats in the new Parliament; does that mean that they are the only Muslims and that the rest are disbelievers? How weird! Algeria was the first country to experience strife since the announcement of democracy in 1988. We are proud of our country, and we would not go as far as killing each other. Praise be to Allah, democracy exists in Algeria. There are some problems, and they are solved in the best manner. We watch and endure the events and strife in neighbouring and brotherly countries daily, and the fatwas issued against them. The lives of Arabs and Muslims have become the cheapest. Algerians are Muslim with Allah’s will. We’ve had enough of wars, and Algeria is our spring. We are forgiving towards our brothers even if they are thieves, and we do not accept foreign intervention under any circumstances. Thank you. Sahrawi Oudhina, from the municipality of Si Abdelghani Tiaret.
The Algerian state is built on deceit and deception.
The question is, how can the party of a regime who is despised by its people gain the majority of votes?
What are you talking about?
Ms Anonymous, I am a proud Algerian woman. The elections were normal and fair for Algerians. We have a President who’s watching over the country, and his people who are loving, dedicated, hard-working, and striving to promote peace and comfort for Algerians. Do not question the integrity of Algerian citizens. Algeria will always be victorious and problem-free, Allah willing.
Leave us alone, Arabs… We sacrificed a million and a half in the liberation revolution, and more than two hundred thousand for democracy… We’ve had enough! Greetings from Algerian Abdelqader.
Praise be to Allah, there is no more colonialism in our country.
Algeria is a 99-percent Muslim country, and the elections went smoothly. The FLN is the most famous and admirable party.
Algerians are well aware of their interest, and they chose security. The ballot count is accurate, and Algerians are smart. These pseudo-parties can’t even count, so they should stay at home. Greetings.
The Algerian government should have mirrored the transparency of European countries in the elections, but alas there is a world of difference between the two. People pay the price, as they still live in oppression and endure the lack of transparency of the Algerian administration. How can a bunch of counterfeiters blur the truth for an entire nation? None of this will last as long as there are educated people in the country.
I know many Islamists who have palaces and luxury cars, so where did they get all that money from?
The elections were certainly forged professionally, and the entire world knows that. It’s even done publicly in some places, and there is no one to call for help. We are tired of this corrupt and rotting system. Algerians witnessed a black decade and were horrifyingly terrorised; consequently, they hesitate now before deciding to revolt against the regime. An Algerian popular saying applies to the Algerian people, and it says “hit someone, and he will know who did it to him”. This regime has, however, forgotten that pressure leads to explosion. Beware of the consequences of humiliating this nation. Never think that the people will accept humiliation and insult; they are only forced to keep silent and cope with the situation. Allah respites (the evildoer) but does not disregard (him). Allah is sufficient, and He is the best Protector. I believe that they will leave, soon or later.
Algerian elections were normal, but they were amplified by the authorities and the media given the current circumstances in the Arab world.
There are no elections in Algeria; there is just a foolish, cowardly nation, and an authoritarian government.
Long live Algeria. I will cherish my country—despite all its mistakes—in my heart.
THE RESULT OF THE MAY 10TH ALGERIAN LEGISLATIVE ELECTIONS WAS THE ANSWER OF THIS SOVEREIGN NATION TO ALL ARAB AND NON-ARAB FORCES CLAIMING TO DICTATE EVERYTHING – INCLUDING THE SEASONS – ON OTHER PEOPLES! THE ELECTIONS’ RESULTS EXPRESS AN OUTRIGHT REJECTION OF THE SCANTY AND PERFIDIOUS MASQUERADE OF THE “ARAB SPRINGS” THAT HAVE ALL TURNED INTO “FUNDAMENTALIST WINTERS”… BLAMING IT ON THE PEOPLE IS TOO EASY! THIS IS ANOTHER EXTERNAL MANIPULATION SUPPORTED BY ISLAMISTS, WHO WILL BE ACCOUNTABLE BEFORE THE PEOPLES WHEN THE TIME COMES… THE FINAL TOLL WILL BE HEAVY! THE ALGERIAN PEOPLE IS PROUD TO BE MUSLIM, AND REJECTS THOSE WHO HIJACK ISLAM, THEIR COMMON, MOST PRECIOUS ASSET, TO TURN IT INTO A BUSINESS… THESE IMPOSTORS HAVE NO LESSONS TO GIVE TO THE ALGERIAN PEOPLE WHO REJECTED THEM IN 1991… SHOULD WE REMIND THOSE WHO HAVE A SHORT, FAILING MEMORY THAT THEIR FINANCIAL PARTNERS AND SPONSORS WILL BE DISAPPOINTED? THEY DIDN’T BET ON THE RIGHT HORSE, THEY ARE DONKEYS… ALTERNATIVELY, THOSE WHO ARE NOT SATISFIED WITH THE ELECTIONS’ RESULTS DON’T KNOW THAT THE ALGERIAN PEOPLE IS SOVEREIGN!
Long live Algeria.
May Allah have mercy on us! My country is heading towards a dark tunnel, may Allah protect it! Algerian leaders hate the Algerian people!
No one can question the ability of the Algerian elections to lead the country to safety.
Who came up with the expression “falsification of the elections in Algeria”? Was it nationals or NATO agents? We congratulate the descendant of the liberation army on this overwhelming victory. This indicated the political mood of Algerians who love the Liberation Front and their President.
Good evening everyone. This is a very good sign for Africa. May God bless us.
I hope that whatever happened in the elections aimed to preserve Algeria. Whoever doesn’t realise that our country is targeted is dead. Our only option is to work hard and respect the will of the martyrs. Algeria is under siege, can’t you see……………………..?
In all honesty and democracy, the Liberation Front proved that it has more political experience than all the other parties and politicians who ran for the elections. There was no fraud, as testified by all supervisors in the polling stations. The reason behind the victory of the NLF was its good planning based on the elections law that no one paid attention to, and which most political formations didn’t even understand until after the elections. This shows the lack of experience of these parties, which are still in the stage of political adolescence compared to the NLF. Therefore, I believe that these parties are not qualified to lead the country.
Algeria is fine.
Algeria is on the verge of collapse. Najmi Walid.
THE ALGERIAN PEOPLE CHOSE FREELY THE WAY THEY HAVE TO FOLLOW. LET THE WORLD SAY WHAT IT WILL.
The elections in Algeria are very fair and Algeria is not like other Arab countries and Algerians will not revolt against their country, no matter how incited they are by jealous people.
Who claims that Algerians are fools is a fool himself
Those elections were serious. They are a gift for our President. Thank you.
This election shows the truth of the system. It will not change until means of clinging to positions, mocking and manipulation of people in order to retain positions of power are changed.
A Moroccan. The truth is, there are no fair elections in the world in general, and in Arab and African countries in particular. Electoral campaigns in the world are not immune to purchases, either with money or with false promises. American and European States cover up their scandals because they control the media. And they even control the media of Arab and African countries, and Aljazeera is proof of that. Demonstrations and security interventions with cruelty in the U.S. and Europe and Al Jazeera is absent, because it cannot debunk them. But it can fabricate chaos and strife in the Arab and Muslim world, isn’t this true?, Unlike in the other world, their media is a weapon against them, because it is funded by those whom I mentioned. Citizens are skeptical of everything. As for the elections in Algeria it was not free from manipulation. Military governments are known for oppression, fraud and lies, and the Algerian government is one of the most corrupt governments among Arab and Islamic countries. That’s because it’s one of the lackeys of French colonialism and they graduated from their schools. It is not a surprise that they rigged the elections in an intelligent way. The Polisario is the best tool they can employ against the Algerian people, the future will reveal the truth.
Whether the election is forged or not is not your business you slaves of America and Israel. You wanted an Arab spring and you got it and the result: nothing appeared. Up till now killing rape and theft ……. We thank God, Algeria is still standing with its intelligent people and we are not stupid like you and those who want Arab Spring we will send it to you to help you
Leave us alone you sickening Arabs, we don’t need your comments. We live better than you and we don’t need you. Just leave us and whoever wants to make comments, let him comment about his own country.
I have no doubt that the one saying – Long live Algeria – justified or not – with the exception of spontaneous people: – is a hating racist who is making this statement for himself only trying to reap interests and privileges, and collecting worldly goods and confiscating freedoms, as if Algeria belongs only to him and the like but not to the other. And I am confident that when the going gets tough and the situation changes, he and his cohorts will cheer – Long live France – and long live others and so on… Their matter is strange as if they were born to change colors like a chameleon. I whisper in the ears of every one of them: Stop gabbing and do not speak on behalf of Algeria and on behalf of people for goals that are to say the least dirty. And then I draw their attention to stop spreading sedition and distinction between the members of one society by labeling people Islamists, bearded men and Salafists and other … fundamentalists … Etc. Strangely, he defames Muslims, but could not yet identify himself and couldn’t even determine his sex whether he is male, female, or hermaphrodite. He probably shaves his face to turn like a woman or she wear pants and shaves her head to turn into a male. This is my conviction and what I mean is not directed to vulnerable people and I hope they will be held accountable before judged.
The Algerian elections showed that Algeria is strong.
The Algerian elections were the fairest parliamentary elections in the history of all Arabs.
Algeria is a sovereign country. The majority party was constantly present in the field, and it worked hard to obtain this result; unlike other parties that only show up at the eve of the elections. I want to tell the NLF: Good job, congratulations, and may Allah guide you towards the best for our independent Algeria. A word to the wise.

Arab springs were not triggered by Islamist movements. On the contrary, the Islamists took advantage of the revolutionaries’ carnival to come under the spotlight thanks to the media. Let’s now take a look at what’s happening in Tunisia, Egypt, and Libya; each group is aspiring to its dogma in the name of Islam, as if we were all infidels “in their eyes”. May Allah the Merciful preserve us from sedition regardless of its source.
We support it.
I am telling whoever thinks Algerians will bow to the hearsay of the igniters of strife: You are wrong, my enemy. Our people sacrificed one and a half million martyrs for the freedom they enjoy today, and they are proud of that. It won’t be easy for you to come back, as the toll will be heavy… You will have to fight against 42 million Algerians who won’t accept anything but freedom and dignity, for which they gave their lives. Long live Algeria, and glory and eternity for our righteous martyrs. An Algerian who cares about his country…
Long live Algeriaaaaaaaaaaaa, and that’s all!
THE ALGERIAN ELECTIONS ARE A DISGRACE
The National Liberation Front Party put facts on the table with the political parties that claim to have experience and the support of the majority of the people. The NLF revealed the true capacity of these parties towards the people, and their bad policies in the country. These parties have forgotten that the NLF has a history and strategic control over Algerians; experience in global strategies; roots in the pure Algerian land soaked with the blood of the martyrs; and a place in the hearts of good generations. Besides, the NLF taught the leaders of other parties who didn’t understand the nature of the Algerian regime. * Long live the National Liberation Front * Long live Algeria. * Long live Algerian youth and elderly who understood the NLF’s strategy at the last minute. Long life to those who are working secretly outside the party * May Algeria always be free and independent. Glory to our pious martyrs.
Algeria has a defensive wall and a strong shield; its sons are wise, and its anger is ruthless. So don’t ever think about hurting it, poor enemies.
We shouldn’t wait for the victory of the Islamic movement to claim that the elections were fair; nor expect chaos in power as was the case in Libya and similar countries… My brothers, all kinds of things have been said by smooth talkers. You say something, I say other things, and someone else adds to all that. Talking is a means of expressing ideas, which are personal. We all said things and followed our currents, and then added more hearsay and analysis. The majority of people probably have forgotten that the best One to say anything is Allah the Almighty. Since He kept Algeria an exception, especially under the current circumstances, then it’s certainly for the best of the entire Muslim nation. If Allah the Almighty considered political Islam – regardless of its current, whether Wahhabi or from the brotherhood – a solution, then He would have bestowed it upon us. I urge all commentators to ponder over the situation and consequences before making superficial comments. A modest Algerian.
Thank you very much!
There was no fraud in the elections this time, apart from a few blunders, but that doesn’t matter. What matters most is that the opinion of the people reached all skeptical individuals. Long live Algeria, and long live the National Liberation Front, especially Mr. Hanoufa the governor of Ain Defla, and the men of Mekhatria, including the Miqran family.
Salaam aleikoum… My name is Bachir… And, in order to appeal to my country, which is not just any country, and to congratulate it, I give my name, because it is about my country, Algeria, it is about Algeria… the Algeria of the ancestors, who were not Harkis, and the Algeria of 1945, which must not be forgotten, and Algeria today, with its political leaders, during the elections they were transparent, with much respect towards the political parties, they are really bad, they are persistently absent and, as soon as there is a vote, there is “tchipa” for them… Then they are all there, even the new ones (coyotes) who do not look like politicians but like merchants… One should call a spade a spade… Our dear president sacrificed his health to build a better Algeria : thank you Sir, a thousand times… He worked hard to keep Algeria “up to date”… For OUR DEAR, the unique… Our first love, that we should not forget… As the clever man said, old enemies are better than a new friend… So I would say long live Algeria… Salaam aleikoum… NB. It is my opinion… Bachir…
I say to the enemies of my country…. be careful and watch out… It is my village, it is mine… Bachir d.
An old saying from home: May God increase the number of idiots so the shrewd can live. These poor sires who are taking us for a ride will suffer the same fate as Gadhafi and his family. “God will wait but will not ignore.”
Everywhere in the world, including in kingdoms, the legislative institution is the most recognised one, because it is from it that the executive institution is established. Therefore, out of respect for voters, the State must require, from the applicants for this position, a minimum number of conditions, including greater honesty, a sense of responsibility and the confidence to refer the problems encountered by citizens for resolution to the superior authorities. In Maisonneuve in Algeria, men and women were elected, and they do not even know how to spell their names ; most of women are whores who involved themselves in prostitution and most of men are corrupt, dishonests and illiterates.
Algerians, without exception, whether you like it or not, scream or stay silent, have no choice but to have a military system, as well as the front of traitors and a thousand humiliations and the system applies the proverb (starve your dog and he will follow you)… A humiliated Algerian from the state of Boumerdes, a former member of the national gendarmerie
Cursed be the National front of destruction…an Algerian citizen
Peace be upon you. I hope that Muslims will not misjudge Islam, because it’s definitely our savior, sooner or later, whether we like it or not, and everywhere in the world. Islam is a comprehensive religion that covers all aspects of life. By reviewing history, you will realize that the Prophet – peace and prayers be upon him – and the Caliphes after him never separated religion and worldly affairs. Also, they did not confine religion to worship, as it is also about relationships (“religion is about social relationships”), the judiciary, Shura, war and treaties. Whoever separates this religion and his worldly affairs has to review his position before it is too late. It is unfair to associate Islam with the actions of humans for whom errors, forgetfulness and inadvertence are innate. Please correct your concepts. Try to live a single day without Islam, regardless of the acts of worship; try, for example, to abstain from feeding your children, to lie, or to hurt your neighbor. Will that be a deed or a sin? And you claim separating religion and life including politics? May God forgive me! BBG
Bouteflika is our dear President in this free country with its committed and proud children. We erase hatred with harmony, and build hope with peace…. We Algerians love one another, and do not allow anyone to interfere in our affairs….. We are a free, authentic nation, so all this is needless. Let’s not forget the struggle and sacrifices of our ancestors. We love people who love us, and whoever interferes in our affairs will be dealt with severely.
Algeria is fine, but it has traitors.
ALGERIA IS NOT LIKE EGYPT, TUNISIA OR MOROCCO. THE ISLAMISTS GAVE US A HARD TIME FOR AN ENTIRE DECADE, SO LEAVE ALGERIANS ALONE AND LET THEM LIVE THEIR LIFE. LA RADIEUSE.
The Liberation Front is very famous. What matters is that the Islamists don’t win, because they are a bunch of people who claim adhering to Islam, and seek to destroy the nation under its cover. We are all Muslims, and our religion doesn’t call for killing women, children and the elderly, or instilling fear in the heart of the Umma that gave its blood to the nation until it delivered itself from colonisers, brotherly neighbours and even countrymen. May Allah always bless us with safety.
Algeria is strong and dignified.
Believe me, I still cannot understand this sneak opposition. – We only see this opposition during the elections. – This opposition haggles with the regime in power behind the scenes, then makes a fuss and claims that there was fraud as soon as the results are announced. – This opposition took part in, and approved, all the control mechanisms put in place to ensure perfect transparency; and now it questions the election results. – As soon as the results are announced, this opposition hastens to take part in round-table discussions on foreign television channels (Arab or not) known for hating Algeria, its people and its leaders. – This opposition threatens to boycott both the government and NPA committees, then hastens to carry out the needed formalities (under the control of the administration they disapprove) in order to receive the benefits of their positions as deputies.
Gentlemen; the people voted and made their choice, so let the elected individuals do their job.
Hello everyone. Algeria is a great country, but it needs a man who fears Allah and will fight corruption. I know some honest Algerians who love their country, but who didn’t get a chance to be involved in the government…… Let’s no forget that there are always honest people who fear Allah, and are aware of His existence. I mean, for example, there was a former minister who became a CEO then a customs officer, and now he has nothing. Why?? Because he is honest. There are many people like him.
I do not support any regime because I am an anarchist, but Algeria is different from the rest of the Maghreb. The country had 7 presidents since its independence, unlike other Maghreb countries where governors cling to power. Moreover, Algeria had its Spring in the late eighties, and endured its scourges alone, while its neighbours were laughing at its misfortune and waiting for its collapse. If Algerians want a revolution, it should be theirs, emanating from their free will, and not dictated by others; the Algerian revolution should not be directed by the U.S., mediated by the Gulf and implemented by internal and external agents. This is the tip of the iceberg. If you repeat (the crime) We shall repeat (the punishment, or worse). I hope that my message is understood. Mercenaries must stay away from a nation that has been immune to enemies. Peace upon you.
The focus here is their country, we are not home here, so may Allah protect us.
Algeria is strong, and the elections were not rigged. Whoever says anything about Algeria will regret it.
An Algerian from Laarisia in Setif. The elections took place – the dogs bark but the caravan goes on -, and the People’s National Assembly was held. Let Arabs do like the brave Algerian heroes, the sons of Ben Boulaid, Abdel Qader, Ben Mahidi and others. Long live free Algeria.
I love Arabs, especially Kabyles, “A”, “Z”, and the FLN of yesterday and today. See you.
When the wolf couldn’t reach the grapes, he said they were sour. Thanks.
The elections were rigged in such a malicious way that nobody could discover this vote rigging, performed by the governing bodies which will never give power to the people, because their interests cannot be affected. They are the ones who control money, they are ready to kill most of Algerian people to protect their interests. They are well prepared (passports, accounts abroad, even their children study abroad…). ان الله لا يغير و ما بانفسهم. بقوم حتى يغيرو ما
I am girl and though young I would like to say a word: why the word enemies, why fear? We are going to appear like cowards and afraid. Even the ones who are not looking for something will covet our country. I’d say if there is a spring in Algeria it will be in the coming years and it depends on the change that will take place, God willing
Despite its energy and human resources, Algeria is still struggling due to the attachment of senior parliamentarians to power despite being on the brink of a pit of fire; these officials are fighting for positions despite lacking the required qualifications. Qualified people are wandering in the streets, fighting problems, and resorting to suicide because the elections allegedly aiming for change and a paradigm shift, are decided by the authorities. Perhaps soon, with Allah’s will, it will create a liberation. No to oppression; yes to peace and Islam without chaos. As for the Islamists, this is what they wanted. If they think this the right thing, then let them bring change. I am reiterating, no to oppression. We want to be free and without constraints in our country. There is much to say. Peace be upon you and Allah’s mercy. Finally, I am urging you to take care of Algeria.
Algeria : it is disabled, it is out of order!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have no opinion, all of this is useless, politics, elections, it is just stage work, it makes no sense ; we should try not to think about it too much and not to bother ourselves with it because it is useless.
Algerian elections were rigged as usual, but I prefer that over the Islamists who had destroyed our nation. I know what I am talking about.
They are 100% rigged.
Algerians are strong and unbeatable; they showed the entire world that the old decade is over and that our enemies closed their mouths.
Why doesn’t the NLF display its affiliation to the socialist and secularist trend like all socialist parties do worldwide? Why doesn’t the Workers Party led by Louiza Hanoun display its affiliation to Trotskyist communism (Trotsky is a Russian Jew from the former USSR) and to secularism like all communist parties do worldwide? What is the NRD’s ideology, communist or socialist? It’s liberal, although it’s also secular for sure. How about these new parties expanding the list, what is their ideology? Only the Islamists display their trend in Algeria, which proves that people do not avoid Islam and are not afraid of it! Do Algerians dislike communist, socialist and secular ideas? Is this why they are not displayed openly and publicly? During this electoral campaign, the majority of women who attended party meetings were veiled or wore headscarves; this is normal when it’s an Islamist meeting, but how can we explain their presence in a secular, socialist or communist party? Opacity and ignorance have been blending well for a long time. The secularists play the religious card: They start their discourses with BISSMALLAH (in the name of Allah, the Most Merciful, etc…) and end it with El hamdoulilleh rabi el aalamine (praise be to Allah Lord of the worlds)! As the Algerian metaphor goes, a stork living in a country of animals! As long as opacity and ignorance are prevailing, there is still much to be done. Bon appétit, ladies and gentlemen (let’s be fair, men are not the only ones who eat). hahahahahahahaha!
Whatever problems we have, we’ll solve them by ourselves. Faulty order is better than anarchy. My brother is hitting me, and you should mind your own business.
When I went with my mother to vote, she suggested that we rip the ballot paper, but I refused. So we went and we didn’t vote.
Good evening. You’re talking about the clean and satisfactory elections that took place in Algeria. I don’t support either the NLF or the NDR, but our country should react to external conflicts. You think that Egyptian events are good? We feel bad even for our neighbor Libya. Please leave these countries alone. Look at Israel, it does whatever it wants; is it because it’s ruling the world and it possesses nuclear missiles that nobody is saying anything? I am exhorting all countries to work for themselves. Oil serves others, but it’s a curse for the countries that do their job properly. May Allah make us happy.
The Algerian elections are totally rigged. This has always been the case for generations.
If fair elections are held in Algeria, Islam will triumph, but its enemies set obstacles to thwart it. One thing is sure, Islam will prevail sooner or later because it is promised by Allah.
Peace upon you. Forgery, alteration and destruction are inherited from one generation to another in Algeria. This does not apply only to the elections, but also to all aspects of life. This is what international terrorism has achieved. Does it make sense to keep hiding behind the mistakes of the FLN since the independence? The people are hypnotised in the name of fighting drugs, although the latter are being sold like chips. Maybe we are deceived, but one day Algerians will be enlightened and wake up from their slumber to recover. The Algerian youth are aware of the cheating, but where to escape? Whether you like it or not, Algeria has the following motto: we lead our own country, and no useful decisions come from you. What a shame, an administration without decisions. I will not be satisfied just by saying all this, I also have to struggle for Algeria to restore its freedom, as we are still living under colonialism. Dear Algerian people, when will you seek peaceful change? We no longer want to stay behind developed nations. In conclusion, beware of this youth, because they are aware despite the anesthesia and the numbing they are subjected to; one day, you will fall and lose all your friends and supporters.

Instead of meditating on what’s happening around us, and learning from the numerous examples throughout the (Arab) world in order to protect ourselves from interference, we continue to insult each other, thus becoming the laughingstock of the world.
The parliamentary elections were neither transparent nor fair, and people from the European Union have spoken too hastily, unfortunately. Their judgement is supposed to give to this travesty of voting a form of lawfulness instead of the legitimity expected by those who asked them to come. The announced voter turnout, i.e. 42%, has just been reduced in half by an ex-apparatchik of the system, one of the greatest intellectuals, coming from the “Grande muette” and thus fully aware of how eveything works. This man announces a voter turnout of 20%. Read “Le Soir d’Algérie” published today – Title : the system is not yet ready for free elections. However I totally agree xith the process used by the decision makers in order to keep the bearded men away. The true winners of these elections are the FIS and the RCD, major parties who called for a boycott. In reply to the Tunisian man who said that Algerians are opposed to give power to Islamists : he has to know that Algerian people experienced April 1980, October 1988, April 2001 and the Black Decade, i.e. Islamic terrorism, that still lasts today. agerian people experienced a nearly self-sufficient life from 1992 to 2005, but they live in a country having steady resources sufficient to meet the needs of its citizens, contrary to what happens in Tunisia. This young man should look at the economical information, and he will see that soon, there will be no more foreign societies in his country and that the tourism sector already registers significant losses of earnings. Unemployment will be the reward for Tunisian people’s political choices. Greetings to all of you, it is the first time I write on this site.
We were the frontrunners of democracy in the Arab world around the end 1988. Unfortunately, we are now in the rear. It’s unfortunate for the blood that flowed and the price that was paid due to the lack of a conscious political class at the top of the pyramid of power in dealing with internal crises, “like in Egypt and Tunisia.” This matter is due to influential people, thieves and ignorant. They cannot even take care of their needs, let alone conduct a state such as Algeria. My brothers, I think these figures, which we have become accustomed to since 1962, are incompetent because the prospects and aspirations of people in power who are over 75 do not correspond with a country mostly made of young people. Many competencies are marginalized. Some argue, they have experience in management, yet the wise can see the results of their management. I see the elections as a “Carnival” and poking fun at people. In our sister county Tunisia, political and military people agreed to protect the country. Everyone is involved in the political deal agreed. In a period I consider short, elections were held and the ballot has spoken in favour of people we love or hate and not, as we have here and as the saying goes, “I show only what I see.” We have a Prime Minister supervising elections where his party is a participant. As well as the official representative of the President of the Republic, who won with 5 percent of the votes. He is the first and the President of the Constitutional Council is appointed by the President of the Republic as an employee. When results were challenged by the quasi-independent electoral council, no one paid attention to their comments, even the simple ones. If they want to have integrity and transparency, by God, we can have that because it is like “making a nuclear bomb.” So, there is no harm in learning from brothers and friends and applying what we learn here and if the ballot (the system) rewards, then that’s fine and if not they have to rise and kick out the military. The role of the military is to protect the country and the people, not fight the people in a war that everyone is loosing.
There is fraud and manipulation of election results all over the world and this is indeed what happened in Algeria

And you? Did you clean your own houses? By hearing you, one would think for a moment that you are enjoying fullness, whereas deep inside you know that the law of the jungle is the best. Please stop boasting about what do not have. It’s not enough to believe that you are strong to allow yourself to intervene wherever things go wrong. But you are free to do so if you want to, because we know who you’re working for.
Whether you rigged them or not, that’s not my business.
I am Hamouda. The country is in a deplorable situation.
Algeria’s ruling party has not learned democracy yet; it considers itself the strongest and most suitable party, and does not accept others, and that will lead to political and social occlusion. One day these criminals will pray for death and won’t die. May Allah protect the beloved Algeria from all evil and from these tyrants. Amen.
Whoever claims that elections were rigged or anything like that should remain silent, okay? Long live Algeria. We are the best in the world. We love our country. Whoever hates it should bang his head on the wall, okay? Whoever bad-mouths Algeria and pretends to be Algerian just to tarnish the country’s image is definitely not Algerian. This is an old trick. Please come up with something new, my brothers. Those who keep talking and exaggerating should keep quiet. I am an Algerian woman, and I’m proud of my country, and of its people, youth and mothers. Everybody is proud of Algeria, praise be to Allah. For your information, we are the best and strongest country, and we are the most wonderful and generous people, so it’s okay to be jealous, my brothers. Long live Algeria. I love my country, the country of my ancestors. I hope that you will publish my comment…
I love my country Algeria. I only have God and my beloved country Algeria. Allah has always protected our homeland, and I’m sure that He will always protect it. No country is as beautiful as ours. Long live independent Algeria. Don’t forget our martyrs in paradise.
In my opinion, a Muslim Algeria is the future, Islam is the only shield against racism and inequality ; of course, I mean the true Islam.
There are neither elections in Algeria nor democracy as long as cheating runs through the veins of few crooks inside a flock of sheep. Nothing will change until they turn to a pride of lions. Comment by B-K W H H from Algeria
This page is great.
Algerians are free to think or do whatever they want. The Algerian people had their say on May 10th, and chose their representatives freely and democratically. We don’t want anybody to interfere with our internal affairs. We gave our blood to this pure land during the popular resistance led by the Prince Abdul-Qader, our revolution for freedom on November 1954 against the French enemy, and our resistance against terrorism. Algerians are absolutely free. We don’t need any lessons from you. Long live Algeria, and glory and immortality to our righteous martyrs.
Good morning. The case of Algeria is very different from the others, and cannot be compared to other cases in the world. I am Algerian and I do not say that I have understood a lot of things, but I have understood one thing: the Algerian people, now, does not live on the Algerian land, people are very far away and do not want to come back, because the return to the algerian reality is very costly and requires a lot of sacrifices from this people, and this people has already given too much. Staying away is also very costly, because the time when the people are going to return to reality, I hope it will not be too late; we know what is the Algerian people’s response, I want to go back again to the May 10th elections, these elections are done, but the Algerian people was not there, these elections occured without it.
Did you see the movie CHRONICLE OF THE SMOLDERING YEARS (Chronique des années de braise) ??? It really reflects the mentality of ALGERIAN PEOPLE, don’t worry, you “do it yourself” philosophers, when the time comes, our mother country will wake up and, like a sphynx, will reduce to ashes all of those rapacious people, those so-called legitimate revolutionaries, those opportunists, because the glorious story of our country brings some significant events to mind : the Berber Spring of 1980, October 1988, the black decade. We had our share of misfortunes and sufferings and, when the time comes, the transition will take place, in a peaceful and thoughtful way certainly, and democracy will become a reality, because our PRESIDENT said it very clearly in his speech on the eve of the 10th MAY elections EDJENANE TABE…
