8:25 pm
sciences and she joins us via skype now from algiers and you saw just a moment ago in rob's report that her name is a resident scholar at the carnegie middle east sentence she joins us from beirut and from london we have algerian journalist jim aladin part of welcome all of you so let me start with you what do you make of the announcement on on tuesday night that mr bush to flicker would in fact resign immediately and we are now already in the post beautifully well indeed and i believe that. there's a lot of the army. because the least it's the second act well that's an awful lot of institutions are really it's just a little too far oh look you can it was should we let you know we're going to let you know the situation and we have been you know not going. to make sure that every
8:26 pm
channel is and you should know and live saturday the people have nothing to do with what i'm talking about the total of all of negotiation i. did a lot of friends ample targets in both the presidential and will of the region there just. constantly and i'm going to will use these demonstrations not just. what's the demand for. hands up out of that i don't need to be built i mean a lot of bands included in favor of the army and of the remaining people of the regime in one of the you think i'll i mean. granted that in some international media even with the rest of the day you think. not because. it just doesn't suit. our mission i mean it's not because of the point.
8:27 pm
that the situation will be about the moment of the incident it's really people in the country are very proud of them. that because of. that they have been able to reach its rich industry still but also question a lot of questions. even if. not one through by you folks so that. you chose to do so. the iranian if we just take a step back from a look at look at what happened in the last couple of days before this we had mr beautifully because of the saying on monday that the president would would step down at the end of april and he and he would take what we call important steps to ensure the continuity of the leadership in the country and that fueled fears that the people around him were were trying to cement their hold on power then we had
8:28 pm
tenet general salam. announcing that they would activate destress even the constitution to remove the sitting president was that the army essentially making a preemptive move here to keep their their position of power. and howard protesters in the streets going to going to interpret that well i think of that you know first of all we have to say that the cut call for any of that happened all during all these weeks showed that the movement to this peaceful and very civic movement to took at the we jim off guard the algerian regime wasn't expecting such a scale of mobilise ation and i think this is a big victory for the algerian people but again there is so much that they still have to achieve that i think of the declaration of gates has special leave the last
8:29 pm
one was very threatening and i believe that president would flee i had no choice that then to resign concerning the military it is very important to point out something that is the wall that the military has been playing in the politics since the independence and the country and till today and i can state today and yesterday we saw it again with the declaration of chief of staff gates has that the military are still. the locus of power in algeria they are not governing but they are ruling as actually historian mohammed had to be stated once to read it rightly he said all states in the world have an army and in an area the army has a state and i think this is still true today and the algerians are bit scared of that because while they recognize the positive role that the military has been player playing they don't want to gates to become what sisi became
8:30 pm
in egypt so they want also the military to step back and to come back to their barracks and they don't want to gates as a matter of fact when i marched with the jury and saw on march twenty second and on the march twenty ninth their slogans were very clear they chanted or heard or hear beautifully how dramatically gates which means go go boots and take with you gates . jamila did thought it was you what's your view on this and the army's position here because if they are trying to paint themselves as kind of the guardian of the people in this but also trying to preserve their own power how are how is that how long is that position going to last the longer they continue to be seen as as pulling the strings. and as as
8:31 pm
a says not going back to their barracks. well the agent they sent a clear message they don't want the egyptians you know to whom they give even an opportunity to the army for why not a portuguese or spanish you know the army help here like they did in there in portugal in the democratic transition democratic. smoothly with the help of the algerians algeria's arvo and they know they want a big a great button and there are scenes of jubilation but there is also caution that they don't trust the army they welcomed the gates maybe was i think would put up a day and a day and he sided with the algerians to fight to win this bottle but they still there is a special caution and they don't want to give. all the confidence
8:32 pm
to gates that there are even calls for gates to give a nod or a. opportunity to algeria and here's to a point maybe a successor a younger successor in the army to help us here for to open a new chapter and its history and she made history with a big war of liberation a big revelation for a liberation good sir can't can't gain a lot of steam even history will will mark him if he helps argyria and the army to make the mute evolution of the democratic revolution maybe to have even impacts and the repercussions in the arab world word cloud with many dictators and well when we twenty six and many oligarchs a demand is said earlier that algerians don't want the egyptians in are just
8:33 pm
explain what you mean by. they don't want to see she knew she should like what happened in egypt the army sacrificed mubarak and then what happened there and sisi is in control with the what what you know what's happening in asia they don't want to repeat they don't want to be fooled by the words of gates praising. the uprising they don't they don't want a chance in the continue to have the same regime they keep they got rid of and they keep the same vision they're not satisfied or not happy that's been solid for example where no one will hate the figure of the face of of the regime continue as well they don't want to do it they don't want between the prime minister to continue as well appointed by putting a copy for his exam existing nation did we was the the interior minister.
