Hundreds of people protested in central Algiers on Friday, under new interim President Abdelkader Bensalah — ten days after former leader Abdelaziz Bouteflika announced his resignation — to push for a change in the entire ruling system.
According to reports, Algerians fear that the government pulls a maneuver to remain in power. Holding Algeria flags and chanting, protesters gathered for the... Еще eighth consecutive week since the beginning of the demonstrations to take Boutefika out of power, in February.
The 82-year-old president, who was rarely seen in public since suffering a stroke in 2013, announced his resignation on April 2, after the army chief called for him to be declared incapable of carrying out his duties. One week later, Algeria's parliament appointed Abdelkader Bensalah as the country's interim-President for the next 90 days.
