High Council of State (Algeria)
|This article does not cite any references or sources. (December 2009)|
The High Council of State in Algeria was a collective presidency set up by the military in 1992 following the annulled elections in December 1991.
It consisted of:
- Mohamed Boudiaf (PRS)
- Ali Kafi (FLN)
- Redha Malek, Prime Minister
- Major General Khaled Nezzar, Defense Minister
- Ali Haroun (FLN)
- Tedjini Haddam
The HCS halted Algeria's democratization, assuming an effective monopoly on politics. Presidential and parliamentary elections were resumed a few years later, when Zéroual assumed the presidency, but the military continued to wield a dominant influence over the process. The Council's policies were mostly concerned with fighting the Islamist rebellion, with mixed success.
