The Minister of Communication, government spokesman, Ammar Belhimer, said that his department will mobilize all its forces to make the legislative elections of June 12 a "milestone" in the construction of the new Algeria.

To do this, Mr. Belhimer who spoke in an interview with the website Algerie54.com, said that two major projects will mobilize all our forces by the legislative elections of June 12, namely the support of the Independent Election Authority (ANIE), on the one hand, and the intensification and diversification of national content produced in cyberspace (electronic press), on the other hand.

Regarding the ANIE, he said that his department acts in accordance with the powers conferred by law, which are specifically related to the promotion and consolidation of democracy and freedom of expression and the development of communication, adding that the recurring warnings and confraternal ministry against violations of the rules of ethics and professional conduct can not hide the attachment, broad and deep, the overwhelming majority of our journalists to a healthy and peaceful exercise of the profession.

As such, Mr. Belhimer said it is, once again, appealed to the noble values of civic and patriotism, professionalism and sense of responsibility, in fact strongly rooted among our colleagues, to make the appointment of June 12 a milestone in the construction of the new Algeria.

For its part, the ARAV (Regulatory Authority of the audiovisual) will assume the mission that sets the law on audiovisual activity to ensure, by all appropriate means, respect for the plural expression of currents of thought and opinion in the programs of broadcasting services and television, including on political and general information, he said.

He added that the ANIE, as project manager, is responsible for their preparation, organization, management and supervision, which includes at all stages an obvious burden of communication that it assumes in full sovereignty, without any interference executive or other.

About the "site" of electronic sites, Mr. Belhimer noted that 70% of Algerians consult the electronic press and that, more importantly, the readability of our national content is necessarily through the networks, the digital transition has an existential character for the nation-state.

For the minister, the security of web platforms and electronic sites is a fundamental issue, as evidenced by a recent audit of institutional websites, conducted by the Observatory of the Algerian group of digital actors (GAAN).

To a question about the survival of the national press, related to institutional advertising, Mr. Belhimer said that the National Company of Communication, Publishing and Advertising (ANEP) has initiated a cleanup of the sector by establishing new rules of the game in the distribution of its advertising manna representing 60% of the national market.
