In preparation for the presidential elections scheduled for December 2024, Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune is making efforts to reconnect with certain figures from the regime of his predecessor, Abdelaziz Bouteflika, reports Africa Intelligence.

Among them is Mouad Bouchareb, former president of the National People's Assembly (APN), the lower house of parliament, from 2018 to 2019.

Former colleagues of Abdelmadjid Tebboune still wield the means, particularly financial, to disrupt his ambitions of running for a second term.

Mouad Bouchareb remains a structural element of the power networks ousted in 2019.

Recently, he has been able to access certain privileges enjoyed by all former presidents of the APN: the allocation of a villa at the Club des Pins, a service vehicle, and close protection.
