The Executive Bureau of the Society for Peace Movement, chaired by Abderrezak Makri, today, held its weekly meeting.
The MSP has announced that it will boycott the session of parliament which will endorse the resignation of Abdelaziz Bouteflika. The two chambers of parliament will meet tomorrow at the Palais des Nations “Nations’ Palace” to confirm the vacancy of the post of President of the Republic declared by the Constitutional Council.
“The resignation of the president is final under the provisions of the constitution, the meeting of the parliament is optional in case of resignation of the president under Article 102”. reads the statement posted on the official page of Abderezak Makri.
The Islamist party believes, moreover, that participation in the meeting is a systematic confirmation of Abdelkader Bensalah as head of state. This is contrary to the demands of the people expressed through the popular movement.
