A group of political parties in Algeria have agreed to nominate the head of the Republican Alliance party, Belkacem Sahili, to participate in the presidential elections scheduled for September 7th.

Al-Khabar newspaper reported on Friday that a group of parties intends to establish a new political bloc that includes several parties with the aim of “developing a common vision on various national and international developments.”

The new bloc, which consists of seven parties, chose Belkacem Saheli as a “consensus candidate”, noting that it seeks to achieve “a number of goals”, including “promoting the national dialogue and creating the appropriate atmosphere for the success of the next presidential election”.

Saheli said the new political bloc “remains open to all political formations, whether they wish to join it or co-ordinate with it”.

On March 21, the Presidency announced in a statement that prior presidential elections would be held on September 7, 2024, 3 months ahead of schedule.

Saheli is the second person to announce his candidacy in the upcoming elections, as he was preceded by the head of the Union for Change and Progress party, Zubaida Assoul.
