President Tebboune: New Republic building requires "review of governance system"

APS - 05 January 2020

ALGIERS – President of the Republic, Abdelmadjid Tebboune on Sunday in Algiers said that building the new Republic requires "review of governance system through a profound amendment to the Constitution."

Chairing a Council of Ministers meeting, the President of the Republic stressed the need for "reconsidering the system of governance, through a profound amendment to the Constitution, regarded as the cornerstone for building the new Republic and of certain key laws such as the organic law on elections."

In the same regard, President Tebboune called for "moralizing the political life by separating money and politics, and eliminating mismanagement practices,” pointing out that the new Republic "should be founded on Rule-of-Law state that guarantees independence of the Judiciary and a truly participatory democracy that grants opportunities for social and political progress for all."

President Tebboune has instructed the members of the Government to be attentive to the "concerns and the needs of the citizens and continue working for the State and the people."

This can only be achieved through "perfect behaviours and the goodwill to preserve public money, combat bureaucracy and respect State’s commitments," he said.

The challenge is to "address the country’s overall situation by restoring the authority of the State and regaining the confidence of citizens."
