ALGIERS- Lieutenant General Ahmed Gaid Salah, deputy minister of National Defense and Chief of Staff of the People’s National Army affirmed Wednesday, in Tamanrasset, that dialogue should preserve the “constitutional legitimacy” with a presidential election as soon as possible.”
In an orientation speech at the school of cadets of the Nation in Tamanraset, on the third day of his visit to the 6th Military Region, Lieutenant General Ahmed Gaid Salah underlined that “dialogue should preserve the constitutional legitimacy, insisting on the need to return, as soon as possible, to the polls to elect president of the Republic while respecting the free popular will.”
“It is certain that those who try to put off this kind of national praiseworthy processes are people and parties adopting the principle of the gang and follow its spokespersons and advocates in a misleading attempt,” added Gaid Salah.
In this respect, he warned against the dangerousness of some people’s initiatives aimed at worsening the situation and prolonging the crisis, adding that “those who resort to it are those who intentionally spread rumors, false information and lies continuously via the various media supports and can’t contribute, under any circumstances, to the creation of an atmosphere favorable to the mutual understanding, and even, a meaningful and rational dialogue.” It means, he added, that “he who indulges in such practices is against the holding of a serious dialogue,” he underlined.
These people “deliberately pursue this way though they were able to be more credible by broadcasting real events instead of giving false information to the public opinion by fomenting lies as well as unreal and unfounded scenarios attributed to personalities and decision-taking centers.” “All this comes from tied up plans that were elaborated with an extreme treachery to question about all the acts aimed at appeasing and reassuring Algerian people and working for appropriate solutions to the country’s current crisis. The purpose is to block any way to get out of the crisis and delay any thoughtful and nationalist initiative for dialogue and consultations between the different parties,” added Lieutenant General Ahmed Gaid Salah.
He added that “in order to fail all these discouraging and unconstructive initiatives, the Algerian people are called today to move forward with their army to take up all the challenges and show allegiance, all allegiance to the country, as it requires all people’s mobilization in the service of Algeria.”
