Prime Minister Abdelaziz Djerad has resigned along with his cabinet.

Mr Djerad presented his resignation letter to President Abdelmadjid Tebboune.

His resignation comes just days after Algerian held its parliamentary elections in mid-June, in which the ruling National Liberation Front Party won majority seats.

Djerad has served as prime minister since December 2019.

Meanwhile, Algeria has also been rocked by political turmoil which began shortly before the departure of veteran ruler Abdelaziz Bouteflika.

President Tebboune has struggled for legitimacy while a protest movement has demanded an overhaul of the country’s political system.
