Algeria’s Prime Minister, Abdelaziz Djerad Resigns

Algerian Prime Minister Abdelaziz Djerad resigned on Thursday, creating a pathway for President Abdelmadjid Tebboune to name a new cabinet.

Djerad’s resignation follows a parliamentary election on June 12 that was marked by a low turnout and no majority winner after two years of mass protests and political turmoil.
