Djerad pledged to all Algerians to trust the new government
Abdelmadjid Tebboune, elected this month to succeed ousted president Abdelaziz Bouteflika, asked Abdelaziz Djerad the new prime minister to form a government。
Djerad replaces Sabri Boukadoum, the foreign minister who was appointed interim prime minister after Tebboune’s election win.
Djerad, 65-year-old premier, who has a Ph.D in political science, struck a conciliatory tone after meeting Tebboune, whose election victory was rejected by protesters as a ploy to keep establishment insiders in power.
Djerad pledged to work with all Algerians to surmount the economic and social challenges confronting the north African country.
