Algeria – The speech delivered yesterday by Prime Minister Ahmed Ouyahia from Paris, on the occasion of the commemorations of the Armistice, sparked a lively controversy over social networks in Algeria. For good reason, the representative of the President of the Republic mentioned 1.5 million "dead" instead of used the word "martyrs."
In a statement made on Monday to Ennahar TV, the spokesman of the National Democratic Rally (RND / Ahmed Ouyahia party), Seddik Chihab said that "the Prime Minister is a pragmatic man who addresses others in the language they understand. "
For Seddik Chihab, this is an "umpteenth attack doomed to failure against the Prime Minister." And to accuse: "Nobody has the right to give lessons to Ahmed Ouyahia in his patriotism and his commitment to the service of the higher interests of the country."
