An Algerian Islamist alliance said on Sunday that it would boycott the upcoming parliamentary elections should there be evidence of fraud, the official APS news agency reported. At a press conference, Hamlaoui Akkouchi, chief of the member party El-Islah (Reform), said The Green Algeria Alliance will withdraw from the elections, slated for May 10, if fraud is found to have occurred.
Akkouchi further said the Algerian people should participate in protecting the legislative elections and his alliance may withdraw from the vote even before it starts if fraud is proved to have taken place during the organization process.
Besides El-Islah, The Green Algeria Alliance has two other members, namely Movement for Society of Peace and Ennahda ( Renaissance.) The alliance suspects that some fraud has already taken place as there is a massive subscription of military troops after the legal deadline.
