"Lack of action on the demands of the people will only prolong the crisis and create new problems, including economic ones. If nothing is done, there will be new waves of protests over economic decline and the fallout effect it will have on the social sphere and the nation’s buying power", Nasser Hamdadush, the parliamentary leader of the Movement of Society for Peace, an Islamic party, said.
He called for a nationwide dialogue and a solution that would be acceptable for all in order to guarantee a peaceful political transition.
The North African nation has been rocked by months of protests, which ended the 20-year rule of President Abdelaziz Bouteflika last week. His ally, Abdelkader Bensalah, took over as interim president to organise an election in 90 days, prompting calls for the entire ruling elite to quit.
