Algeria: six ministers take the exit door


In Algeria, President Abdelmadjid Tebboune reshuffled his government on Sunday. During a speech to the Nation last Thursday, the Head of State announced the dissolution of Parliament and a cabinet reshuffle within 48 hours.

The Prime Minister Abdelaziz Djerad, much criticized, keeps his post while six ministers take the exit door. The Minister of Energy is leaving, Abdelamadjid Attar, in charge of a declining oil rent, and his colleague from Industry, Ferhat Aït Ali, which pays its management of the file of the revival of the automobile industry.

The ministers of Water Resources, Tourism, Environment and Public Works are also leaving the government. Among the new arrivals, with the Tourism portfolio, is Mohamed Ali Boughazi, a former adviser to the deposed ex-president Abdelaziz Bouteflika, an appointment that makes people cringe on social networks.

Symbol of the anti-corruption fight, Belkacem Zeghmati keeps his wallet at Justice, just like Ammar Belhimer as government spokesperson. Before flying to Berlin at the beginning of January, to be treated there for “complications” post-Covid, Abdelmadjid Tebboune had publicly expressed his dissatisfaction with the government’s action.

No date has been set for the early parliamentary elections while Constitution provides for a maximum period of six months. This change of personnel took place on the eve of the 2nd anniversary of Hirak. Launched on February 22, 2019, this popular movement pushed President Abdelaziz Bouteflika to resign, after two months of protest.
