Speaker of the Arab Parliament, Adel Bin Abdulrahman Al-Assoumi, yesterday congratulated Algeria for holding the legislative election on Saturday.

"Conducting these elections represents an important stage in the process of democratic development and strengthening political participation in the Republic of Algeria and represents a necessary step forward," Al-Assoumi said in a statement.

He commended: "The Algerian people's ability to pass this important democratic process and overcome all challenges under the wise leadership of the President of the Republic, Mr. Abdelmadjid Tebboune," expressing at the same time his confidence in the new lawmakers' ability "to shoulder the great responsibility" entrusted to them by the Algerian people.
