Algeria: End of an era, but not of the “Pouvoir”
- The Algerian opposition appears unwilling to accept a compromise that allows any member of the existing National Liberation Front (FLN)-dominated political establishment to retain power.
- A number of oil and gas deals could be impacted as companies hold off on commitments to new investment. The new energy law expected in 1H 2019 could also be delayed.
- Following the political transition and elections, the new Algerian president will inherit another crisis-in-the-making: the economy.
