"We do not recognize the presidency of Bensalah, we call on him, Prime Minister Noureddine Bedoui, the head of the Constitutional Council to resign, as President Abdelaziz Bouteflika has done earlier", Hamdadush said.
As the party has been supporting rallies against Bouteflika and those representing the longtime leader, it refuses to maintain talks with the interim government over Bensalah’s appointment going against the demands of the protesters, the lawmaker noted.
The lawmaker went on to call for a dialogue involving all political actors in order to determine the transitional period.
Bensalah has replaced ailing President Bouteflika, who was forced out by mass protests last week. The parliament gave the upper house speaker 90 days to see the country through a transition.
His confirmation was met with fresh demonstrations in Algiers where hundreds of mostly young protesters took to the streets shouting "Bensalah, get out!" The lawmaker is seen as a close ally of the ousted president. On Wednesday, media reported that Bensalah had set new presidential election for 4 July.
