WI: "Zimbabwe-Rhodesia" solution to France's Algerian crisis?

How about some sort of "Zimbabwe-Rhodesia" situation, where Algeria has it's own Parliament but is still under French rule, and there are 100 seats in the Parliament, of which 72 are elected directly by native Muslim Algerians (and must be native Muslims themselves), 20 are elected by French Christian/Jewish Algerians (and must be French Christian or Jewish themselves) and 8 are French Christian/Jewish, but are elected by the 72 native Muslims who were elected by the Muslim electorate.

(this is virtually identical to the short lived "Zimbabwe-Rhodesia" settlement between Ian Smith's Rhodesian government and moderate Black nationalists that existed in 1979, I have taken that country's electoral system and replaced "Whites" and "Blacks" with "French Christians/Jews" and "native Muslims" respectively)
 
The vast majority of Muslim (and most of the Jews too, probably) Algerians would have loved it even up to possibly the late 1950s.

The problem is getting the pied noirs to agree.

Is a constituency or a party-list system used for these elections?

Jews in Algeria mostly sided with the pied-noirs (and fled with them in 1962), ever since the Cremieux Decree of 1871, they had equal rights with the pied-noirs.
