Actions in the face of the political crisis. Algerian President Abdemadjid Tebboune reshuffled his government on Sunday February 21. The long-awaited approach, however, did not lead to a major team change despite the popular Hirak protest movement that began just two years ago.

The Prime Minister, Abdelaziz Djerad, however criticized, remains in his post. The Minister of Justice, Belkacem Zeghmati, symbol of the fight against corruption but also of the judicial repression against Hirak militants, also retains his portfolio, as does the Minister of Communication and government spokesman Ammar Belhimer, who keeps control of the media.

President Tebboune had previously dissolved the National People’s Assembly, the lower house of parliament, paving the way for early parliamentary elections within six months. No date has yet been set for the election, but the political class is counting on the month of June. According to the Constitution, elections must take place within three months.
