#Algeria : The Algerian President, Abdelmadjid Tebboune, proceeded this Sunday, February 21, to a partial reshuffle of the government. This is more of an announcement effect than a real cabinet reshuffle. Here is the full list of members of the new government.
In all, only 6 ministries left government. Among them are Abdelmadjid Attar (Energy), Farhat Ait Ali (Industry), much criticized for his management of the issue of the revival of the automotive industry, and Kamel Nasri (Housing, town planning and the city).
The Prime Minister, Abdelaziz Djerad, however criticized, remains in his post as well as the holders of the royal ministries: Belkacem Zeghmati, Minister of Justice, Keeper of the Seals, Sabri Boukadoum, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Kamel Beldjoud, Minister of the Interior , Local Authorities and Regional Planning, and Aïmene Benabderrahmane, Minister of Finance.
This is more of an announcement effect than a real cabinet reshuffle that should spur a new dynamic in the country.
In any case, this new government will have to face several challenges, including from tomorrow the celebration of the second anniversary of Hirak which could signal the resumption of popular protests.
Here is the composition of the new Algerian government:
