We colonized countries for ages than we ask them to be democtaric….strange?

If the Algerian people choose to reelect someone over and over again,then thats their choice.
That person must be doing something right otherwise they would opt for another person.
It is obviously imperative that these elections are held in a free and fair atmosphere.
