Algeria is an autonomous region within the French Empire since 1949.


Although Algeria is considered as one of the 29 regions of the French Empire, it has a different legal status than the 28 other regions. Since 1949 "Year of Emancipation", the former colony became an autonomous region within the French Empire. The power of the Regional President is larger than other Regional Presidents. The region's National Assembly has considerable powers. Abdelaziz Belkhadem of the moderate right Parti National Démocratique Algérien (PNDA) is the regional President since 2000. The centrist Bloc Algérien led by Said Sadi forms the opposition.
