National Republican Alliance

The National Republican Alliance (Arabic: التحالف الوطني الجمهوري‎; French: Alliance Nationale Républicaine, ANR) is a minor Algerian political party led by ex-Prime Minister Redha Malek and founded on 5 May 1995.[1] It is sometimes considered an offshoot of the older FLN. The ANR is strongly anti-Islamist, and denounced the 1995 Sant'Egidio accords, while later backing the referendum on national reconciliation. It received 208,379 votes in the elections of June 1997, but boycotted the 2002 elections, claiming they would be rigged.
