WFD launched a new programme to assist the Algerian Parliament in 2017, with funding from the UK embassy in Algiers. The programme provides support on parliamentary process, including induction of new members and advice on how to communicate with those you represent, while also contributing to an improved Algeria – UK relationship.

A new constitution was introduced in Algeria in February 2016. This paved the way towards increased public engagement by transferring new powers to the Parliament. WFD’s programme is designed to support the Algerian Parliament in developing the skills to put these new powers into practice.
WFD’s continued engagement with senior officials in the People’s National Assembly (Lower House) and Council of the Nation (Upper House) led to productive exchanges between MPs and staff in the Algerian Parliament and their counterparts in the UK and a successful induction programme for new members of the National Assembly.
