The Arab Socialist Ba'ath Party of Algeria (French: Parti Baath arabe socialiste d'Algèrie, Arabic: حزب البعث العربي الاشتراكي في الجزائر Hizb Al-Ba'ath Al-Arabi Al-Ishtiraki fy Aljeza'ir), is a political party in Algeria. It is the Algerian regional branch of the Iraqi-led Ba'ath Party. It is led by Ahmed Choutri.[1]

The party is currently banned, and Choutri was forced to flee to Iraq during the 1990s because of governmental repression against the Algerian Ba'ath movement.[2] The party sympathised with the Iraqi ba'athist insurgency and supported Izzat Ibrahim al-Douri, leader of the Iraqi branch.[2] Following his return to Algeria in 2003, Choutri wrote The Baathist Faith of President Saddam.[2]
