President-elect Tebboune to start “consultations” on drawing up new constitution


President-elect Abdelmadjid Tebboune said in his first public statement on Friday that he would start “consultations” on drawing up a new constitution that would be put to Algerians in a referendum. He also offered a “serious dialogue” to the opposition mass protest movement, saying he would institute reforms to reduce spending on imports and promised to “open a new page” for Algeria



The former prime minister was elected Algeria’s new president in a vote the authorities hope will end months of turmoil.

According to official results, Tebboune won the election with more than 50 percent of the vote, avoiding the need for a run-off against any of four other senior former officials sanctioned to stand.
