Algeria: Delays expected during presidential campaign
AGS Algeria wishes to inform its colleagues and partners that delays are to be expected in the following weeks due to the upcoming presidential elections in the country, scheduled for 18 April 2019.
President Bouteflika’s announcement that he will seek a fifth term in the elections has provoked strong reactions from the opposition. Several protests have already taken place to contest his candidature and more protests are scheduled over the coming days and weeks. Demonstrations are likely to disturb the progress of operations and will lead to significant delays and additional charges (demurrages, storage, etc.).
