Quotes

"President Bouteflika has won comfortably in the eastern provinces, and we're going out onto the streets to celebrate, not to boycott" said Amar Saadani, the secretary-general of the National Liberation Front (FLN)
"I do not recognize these results, I condemn this fraud" he said soon after the closing of the polls
...German Institute for International and Security Affairs, social media can be an important medium for raising awareness of human rights violations, "but it can not substitute for real debate and grand mobilisation."
...youth, in particular, generally express themselves outside of the institutional and political framework, basically in the street," says Mouffok. "But the core of the problem is political. The youth in particular is increasingly realising that supporting a regime that is not legitimate and corrupt has a damaging effect on the socio-economical situation of the country and on theirs directly."
