MOSTAGANEM ( Algeria)- President of the Republic Abdelmadjid Tebboune said Monday the constitutional amendment bill, to be submitted to referendum on November 1st, "will be a stark illustration of the civilizational values of Algeria and will enshrine loyalty to the oath of the martyrs and strengthen the rule of law highlighted by the genuine blessed Hirak movement."
"Our civilizational values, drawn from the precepts of the Holy Qur'an, are an illustration of our loyalty to the martyrs' oath and to our history," the president of the Republic said in a message to the participants in the 22nd National Week of the Qur'an, read on his behalf by the minister of Religious Affairs Youcef Belmehdi.
"The initiative under which the National Remembrance Day was established and our plan to launch a television channel dedicated to history, is in tune with our choice to take a safe and indisputable national path in our sincere march, determined to move forward in the achievement of the noble goals for which our martyrs sacrificed themselves," President Tebboune said.
"These are the objectives that we want to achieve and enshrine through the constitutional amendment, which will inevitably lead to the establishment of the rule of law, advocated by the genuine blessed Hirak movement."
The president of the Republic stressed that "laying the foundations of reform means ensuring the emergence of dormant energies in our society."
"By reform, I mean the creation of a favorable and attractive environment for all the talents that abound in our country, in favour of equity, freedom, peace and security."
President Tebboune reiterated his commitment to the path of reform, a must, he said, that "I promised to dedicate to preserve our country from corruption, fight it, dry up its sources and eliminate its causes."
"Corruption is an act of betrayal of the homeland," he said.
