Paris, 26 June (AKI) – The descendant of Algerian immigrants, Rahid Nekkaz, has already gained the backing of 213 mayors in her bid become the first French citizen of Algerian descent to run for the French presidency in next year's election. Granting French citizenship to immigrants who have lived in France for at least 10 years and voting rights will be form the key planks of Nekkaz's platform.

"I am proud to be the first Franco-Algerian to seek election as president of France," she told the Algerian daily El Watan in an interview on Monday. "I have a good chance of obtaining the 500 signatures I need to run as a candidate.," she continued.

A thaw in the currently tense relations between France and Algeria, which have persisted despite the annulment of a controversial French law approved last year which required the school curriculum to recognise the positive role of French colonialism, especially in North Africa. The law was fiercely criticised by Muslim groups.
