Algerian President Bouteflika's project faces difficulties to see light
According to corroborating sources, a project initiated by the government concerning the building of 100 stores in each district of the country, is facing lot of difficulties in practice as the deadline fixed by the authorities is approaching.
The major problem encountered by local authorities is the absence of pieces of land to built these stores in some small districts, which pushed them to reconsider the initial schedule by increasing fourfold the number of stores in some large areas to offset the shortage recorded in the small district, regardless of the density of the population.
Recently, the solidarity minister, Djamel Oueld Abbas declared the 154100 stores project will be delivered by the end of the year, but reports issued by the local authorities blow in the opposite direction.
Estimates show that the number of stores can in no way satisfy the increasing demand of applicants.
The project is doomed to fail owing to dissentions among members of the government, notably the small and medium, solidarity and professional training ministers who wanted to make of this project their own each in his sector.
