مركز الإمارات للسياسات | 01 Oct 2013

The analysis raises the question of the future of the National Salvation Front after the turbulence within its ranks. It monitors the Front’s points of weakness as follows: • It is a front of balances, not a political coalition, • It is an opposition front, not a reform front, • It is a front of individuals, not a front of programs, • It is a front of elites, not a front of grassroots. The analysis predicts the following four scenarios for the future of the Front: • Dissent; which means the liquidation of the Front, • Quality existence, • Temporary halting of activities, • Revival and renewal. The analysis gives weight to the scenario of temporary halting of activities.
