The President of the Republic, Mr. Abdelaziz Bouteflika, will preside today Wednesday over the first Council of Ministers since the last cabinet reshuffle he carried out last May, by virtue of his constitutional prerogatives.

The Council of Ministers’ meeting, to be held under the aegis of the Head of State, is therefore a matter of salient importance. 

For this reason, this is the first solemn contact between the President of the Republic and the new staff of the Executive, headed by a seasoned Manager, Mr. Abdelmadjid Tebboune, as new Prime Minister.

What is essentially expected from today's meeting is the approval by the Council of Ministers of the new government's action plan. 

This document was worked out by inter-ministerial groups, which set out to define the priority "axes" to be emphasized in the new Government's action.

 The action plan in question was the focus of a final thorough review at the last week's Cabinet meeting, chaired by Prime Minister Abdelmadjid Tebboune.

This new "roadmap" of the Government, which will again be submitted for consideration at today's meeting of the Council of Ministers, has been further consolidated, on the occasion of the recent meeting of the Council of the Government, in line with the same inter-sectoral logic as Mr. Tebboune had wished. 

The endorsement by the Council of Ministers of the Government's Action Plan will set the stage for its presentation by the Prime Minister, Mr Tebboune, to Parliament, with its two chambers, as stipulated in the new Constitution revised in 2016. 


A first date has already been announced, that of Sunday, June 18th, which was chosen for this "grand oral discourse" of the Prime Minister, first in front of the deputies, then in front of the senators. Nevertheless, according to reliable sources, there is every reason to believe that this date chosen for the presentation of the Action Plan before the MPs might be postponed beyond 18th June.
