ALGIERS, 19 February, 2021 (TON): As Algeria was commemorating the National Martyrs Day on Thursday, the Algerian President, Abdelmadjid Tebboune dissolved the parliament and called for an early legislative election.
The decision came after several meetings between the President and the heads of the parties, Belaid, and Abdelkader Bengrina, head of the National Building Movement and former minister and candidate in the presidential elections.
It is expected that the People’s National Assembly would be dissolved in the coming days.
In recent weeks, the pressure on the government has been mounted.
Several thousand Algerians rallied in a northern town Tuesday against the military and current President Abdelmadjid Tebboune in the rally in Kherrata.
