Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune on Wednesday called for preparing to hold a popular referendum on constitutional amendments.
Axar.az reports that, speaking at a cabinet meeting in the capital Algiers, Tebboune said: "I call on you from now to prepare for the constitutional referendum stage, in order to provide the best conditions for the citizens to say their word on the future of their homeland".
The Algerian president accused members of the former regime of launching a counter-revolution by using cash to trigger protests. He, however, did not give names.
"The door for repentance is still open for those who have wronged in order to serve their country in the future,” he said.
Tebboune said public opinion surveys showed that 80% of the Algerians are satisfied with the current security situation and stability in the country.
