Algeria’s presidency unveils new government

News24: Newly-elected Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune formed his government on Thursday, two weeks after he took office following a controversial election, his spokesman said.

Tebboune’s cabinet is composed of 39 members, whose names were announced by the spokesman on state TV live from the presidency, in a departure from the usual procedure of naming a government in a statement.

Tebboune was elected last month in a poll marred by an official turnout of less than 40%, with a months-long protest movement boycotting a vote they saw as a ploy by the establishment to consolidate its power.

The unprecedented movement forced longtime president Abdelaziz Bouteflika to step down in April.
