Several ministers are leaving the government which keeps Prime Minister Abdelaziz Djerad at its head. They are, among others, the Ministers of Industry Farhat Aït Ali, Water Resources Arezki Barraki, Tourism Mohamed Hamidou, Environment Nassira Bengarrats, Public Works Farouk Chiali, and Energy Abdelmadjid Attar.

The new appointments concern Mohamed Bacha who becomes the new Minister of Industry, Mohamed Arkab (Energy and Mines), Kamel Nasri (Transport and Public Works), Mustapha Kamel Mihoubi (Water), Mohamed Ali Boughazi (Tourism), Tarek Belaribi, (Housing and Town Planning), Dalila Boudjemaa, (Environment), and Hocine Charhabil (Statistics and Digitization).

President Tebboune also signed a decree to dissolve the National People’s Assembly, the lower house of the national parliament. Thursday, February 18, the leader had already declared that he wanted to organize early legislative elections. « I decided to dissolve the National People’s Congress to call for elections […], and open its doors to young people ”.

These decisions are part of a difficult context marked by the covid-19 pandemic which affects the national economy, but also occur on the occasion of the celebration of the second anniversary of the Hirak movement which started on February 22, 2019.

Despite the fall of former President Abdelaziz Bouteflika and the prosecution of several of his relatives, the protests have continued to grow, and many Algerians continue to see the current power as an extension of the ‘former.

For his part, Mr. Tebboune is trying to put in place many reforms intended to satisfy the demands of Algerian youth. 1is November 2020, a referendum was held to revise the country’s Constitution.
