Algeria may face an economic crisis by 2019 in case the Algerian authorities did not undergo immediate economic reforms, after oil revenues have fallen since 2014, according to a report released by the International Crisis Group (ICG) on Monday.

According to Agence France-Presse (AFP), the report said that “In the absence of reforms (…) the economic crisis could affect Algeria by 2019, which would fuel the tension surrounding the upcoming presidential elections.”

Less than six months before the anticipated elections, the possibility of re-nominating President Abdelaziz Bouteflika for a fifth term continues to dominate the Algerian political scene.
