Good governance and rule of law


Three weeks after the early legislative elections, held on 12 June, the Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune has announced the new government.


Headed by Aymen Benabderrahmane, the new government reappointed 17 ministers from the previous administration. However, the Ministers of Foreign Affairs and Justice have been changed. The former president of the Supreme Court, Abderrachid Tebbi, succeeded Belkacem Zeghmati as head of the Ministry of Justice. The former diplomat Ramtane Lamamra, a veteran of chancelleries, replaced Sabri Boukadoum at the Foreign Affairs Ministry.


The 12 June elections were won by the ruling National Liberation Front (FLN), independents loyal to the head of government, and small parties close to the government.
