Article 102: “Serious threat to country’s stability” former Minister Rehabi


Algeria – The former diplomat and ex- Minister, Abdelaziz Rehabi, said, in a post on his Facebook page, that the application of Article 102 “is a confiscation of popular sovereignty”.


He added that the process does not offer any guarantee of a consensual, gradual and peaceful democratic transition that will give people time to organize themselves to become actors in their destiny.

“I regret that the president did not choose another way more honorable for himself,” he writes.

For him, “The organization of elections in the current conditions is a political adventure carrying serious threats to stability, which can only be guaranteed by a democratic rule of law.”

The Chief of Staff called, yesterday, for the implementation of Article 102 of the Constitution which stipulates the vacancy of the post of President of the Republic.

The latter allows the «removal of the president from office on the grounds of medical issues or other problems such as the inability of «exercising his functions.”

The article grants the presidency of Algeria, for 135 days, to the Speaker of the Council of the Nation, the upper house in the Algerian parliament.
