Union for Social Progress

The Union for Social Progress (French: Liste d'union et de progrès social) was a list that contested the Algiers Muslim non-citizen constituency in the 1945 French Constituent Assembly election. The list was close to the French Section of the Workers International.[1] The candidates of the list were (in order) Bachir Abdelouahab,[2] Mohand Achour,[3] Abderrahmanne Bouthiba[4] and Abderrahmane Farès.[1]

The list won three of the four seats allotted to the constituency. It got 136,109 votes out of 235,833 votes cast (in total there were 480,826 registered voters).[2] Abdelouahab, Achour and Bouthiba were elected. However, Abdelouahab resigned from his seat in early 1946. On March 14, 1946 Adberrahmane Farès overtook his seat in the Constituent Assembly.[1]
