Free Elections in Algeria

Winds of Change documents the story. Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit calls this good news and I concur.

"The lesson to be learned from Algeria’s experience of democratization, some analysts say, is that in 1991 the country picked the wrong moment to open the doors to pluralism and then opened them too wide. This year, these observers say, reflected a more wisely chosen moment for holding elections, and a restriction of participation to parties which supported liberal democracy."
