Algeria is the largest country in Africa, located in North Africa and bordered by Tunisia and Libya to the northeast, Niger to the southeast, Mali and Mauritania to the southwest, Western Sahara to the west, and the Mediterranean Sea to the north. Algiers serves as the capital and largest city. Algeria gained independence from French colonial rule in 1962, and the National Liberation Front (FLN) played a pivotal role in the struggle for independence. The political landscape is dominated by the FLN, which has historically been the ruling party. The presidency holds significant executive power, and as of my last update, Abdelmadjid Tebboune was serving as the president. Other political parties include the Rally for Culture and Democracy (RCD), the Islamist party Movement of Society for Peace (MSP), and the secular Socialist Forces Front (FFS). Algeria has a mixed economy heavily reliant on hydrocarbon exports, particularly natural gas and oil, making it vulnerable to fluctuations in global energy prices. The country faces economic challenges, including high unemployment rates, youth bulge, and the need for economic diversification. Political stability has been a priority for the government, particularly in the face of regional and security concerns, including the impact of the Arab Spring on neighboring countries. Algeria’s political landscape may have evolved, and it is advisable to consult more recent sources for the latest information on the country’s overview and political dynamics beyond January 2022.
