Ousting regime leads Algeria into chaos like post-Saddam Iraq: Brahimi


Veteran Algerian diplomat Lakhdar Brahimi asserted that the “regime could not be dissolved overnight,” saying that such a move would plunge the country into the chaos of Iraq post-Saddam Hussein, who was deposed in the US-led invasion in 2003.

In an interview with Algerian state news, Brahimi cautioned against “haste” in adopting the new constitution and holding elections, saying that the result would end up like Egypt.

Days after Algeria’s 82-year-old president, Abdelaziz Bouteflika, announced that he would not seek a fifth term, protesters flooded the nation’s capital Friday to call for his government’s ouster.
