The Deferred Test: The Political Future of the National Salvation Front 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.
