Algeria president to 'dissolve parliament': local media

Algerian President Abdelmajdid Tebboune is planning to dissolve parliament and call for an early legislative election, local newspaper Echorouk newspaper reported, citing an ex-presidential candidate and opposition party Front des Forces Socialistes (FFP).

Tebboune is "preparing to issue a decision to dissolve parliament in the coming days," said Abdelaziz Belaid, head of the FFP, according to the paper.

Doing so would mark the start of elections in the country, which has been swept with nation-wide protests and the Hirak movement.

It is likely that Tebboune will make the announcement before National Martyr Day on February 18, Belaid implied based on a meeting with Tebboune.
