HistoryEdit

The Future Front was founded on February 9, 2012 after its leader, Abdelaziz Belaïd, split from the National Liberation Front (FLN). It is a centrist party, dominated by youth and holds a conciliatory approach towards the ruling regime.[1] The party won two seats in the 2012 Algerian parliamentary elections and 14 seats in the 2017 elections.[2] Its presidential candidate and leader of the party, Abdelaziz Belaïd, came third in the 2014 Algerian presidential election with 3.36% of the vote. In the 2019 presidential elections, his support rose to 6.67% but he only came fifth in the race.

In 2019, during the transitional period after the resignation of President Abdelaziz Bouteflika, the Future Front called for the inclusion of "all the fringes of society" in the process of the presidential elections, so that those elections may be "transparent and regular".[3] In June 2020, a representative of the party, Samir Chaabna, was appointed as Deputy Minister of the PM in charge of connections with Algerians abroad.[4]
