InfoA former human rights activist and campaigner for the Berber culture and language, Said Sadi is a psychiatrist by profession.

He is a staunch adversary of the Islamists and a supporter of a secular state.

His party, the Rally for Culture and Democracy (RCD), was briefly a junior partner in the first coalition government formed by President Bouteflika.

Said Sadi is seen as close to the army generals who, in 1992, cancelled general elections which Islamists were poised to win. He came third in the 1995 presidential elections, with under 10 per cent of the vote.

Said Sadi has consistently called for a radical overhaul of the political establishment and a chance for the post-independence generation to lead the country. His opposition activities earned him a short spell in prison in the 1980s.
