Reactions against the regulation issued by the European Parliament on the human rights situation in Algeria continues to cause controversy among many political forces in the country, whether opposition or loyalists, who agree that the MEPs report is interference in Algeria’s internal affairs.
Chairman of the Movement for Society of Peace, Abdeerrazak Makri, said that what was mentioned in the European Parliament’s regulation regarding the deterioration of freedoms in Algeria is a dangerous statement confirming the trend towards the attempt to impose tutelage on Algeria, especially since the list came in the form of orders.
He posted through his official Facebook page that “We take care of our internal and sovereign issues and MEPs have no right to tell us what to do because they are hypocrites and we do not trust them at all”.
“They disregard human rights and democracy when their interests are achieved or when they control our wills through their allies among us, as it is the situation in other Arab countries that are the biggest enemy of freedoms and democracy, and in the name of human rights and democracy they only pressurize us for blackmail and control”, Makri added.
“They are seeking to change our legislation which is related to our identity, especially with regard to our family system. They consider that the Arabic language is preferable to the Amazigh language and are blind to the fact that the French language is the dominant language. All they care about is to keep the French dominance to ensure that their interests are protected”.
“They are exploiting the impulses, deviations and mistakes of the political system in the field of freedoms, and its imposition of non-consensual agendas to blackmail it in what they really want to achieve in terms of interests and when they want to change the constants of Algerians”.
For its part, the National Binaa Movement, on the words of its leader, Abdelkader Ben Guerina, considered that the list issued by the European Parliament reflects an extortionist background to Algeria that is repeated every time, and from the same bodies that exploit international platforms to pass its agendas, and the movement believes that “Algeria is under pressure because of its honourable positions in defending peoples ‘rights, rejecting double standards policy and mortgaging the positions of international institutions to the narrow accounts of some countries of hegemony and expansion, plundering peoples’ wealth and trading in tensions”.
El Binaa Movement pointed to the need to strengthen the national front and cohesion of national harmony to protect Algeria from the current and expected threats and dangers and to complete the path of national change and secure it with the participation of all parties. Countries by feeding wars and threatening regional peace.
“We strongly reject the attempts of some states and parties to disrupt international legitimacy decisions, circumvent peoples ‘rights and threaten states’ stability by feeding wars and threatening regional peace”, Ben Guerina explained.
The movement of some political parties led the MPs of the National People’s Assembly to move against the list issued by the European Parliament, where the parliamentary bloc of the National Liberation Front party rushed to issue a statement denouncing what it described as illegal interference in the country’s internal affairs, as it read: “The parliamentary group of the National Liberation Front is defending the ethics of parliamentary work as much as it takes responsibility for the representation of Algerian citizens and their refusal to interfere in the internal affairs of countries.
The statement of NLF’s parliamentary group concluded by calling upon all Algerians, including parties, associations, civil society and national figures, for the necessity of uniting the ranks more than ever before, because the goal of such manoeuvres by Algeria’s enemies is to strike its security and stability, especially in this stage which the Algerian people chose to establish a new Algeria through a new constitution that is devoted to expanding the rights and freedoms of citizens that are demanded by the Algerian people.
The same position was adopted by the parliamentary group of the National Democratic Rally, which announced its rejection of what it described as blatant interference in Algeria’s sovereign decisions, asserting that the interventions of the European Parliament do not help at all to build a wall of confidence with Algeria as a key player in many security, political and economic issues.
