Mouloud Aounit became in 1989 its first general secretary (1989-2004), then president (2004-2008), then member of the presidential college (2008-2011) not to belong to the French Communist Party (PCF).

MRAP

Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP; ) is an American term for vehicles that are designed specifically to withstand improvised explosive device (IED) attacks and ambushes. Armored vehicles designed specifically to counter the land mine threat were first used during the Rhodesian Bush War; the technology subsequently matured with the development of the South African-designed Casspir armored fighting vehicle, which inspired the United States MRAP program and was the basis for some of the program's vehicles. From 2007 until 2012, the Pentagon's MRAP program deployed more than 12,000 MRAPs in the Iraq War and War in Afghanistan.
