Algeria: Mayors, magistrates boycott presidential elections


About 40 mayors in Algeria have joined the protest movement to reject the upcoming July 4 elections.


Head of State Abdelkader Bensalah promised to organise a transparent vote, however, protesters call for the departure of the current regime. Apart from the mayors, are lawyers and magistrates who have also rejected the July poll.

According to them elections cannot be free and fair if they are held under the same judicial framework and institutions as those of the Bouteflika regime.

It should be noted that mayors and magistrates play a crucial role in the organisation of elections in the country and with their boycott, the elections might just not take place.
