Pray for Algeria - facebook page

The exodus of doctors, engineers and other highly skilled workers is a headache for a government hoping to engage with its largely youthful electorate ahead of the vote on April 18. President Abdelaziz Bouteflika, 81, has not said if he will seek a fifth term, although the ruling FLN party, labor unions and business leaders are urging him on. Young professionals feel disconnected from an elite populated by the veterans. They want to pursue their careers but feel discouraged by a system that offers low-paid jobs and little opportunity to better themselves. Nearly 15,000 Algerian doctors work in France now, and 4,000 submitted applications to leave their home country last year, according to official figures. Pray that the government will gain the trust of the disconnected young generation and the system will improve. Pray that desirable changes will happen in the country to retain the young people of caliber (The Bible, Psalm 78:72).

Algerian brain drain is pre-election headache for government
