France: Algerians continue protests in Paris to demand overhaul of govt.

Thousands of Algerians took to the streets of Paris on Sunday for the eight week in a row to push for a change in the entire ruling system. Gathered at Place de la Republique, protesters chanted, marched and carried the Algerian and the Kabylie flags to demand «a real democracy», fearing that that the government will remain in power. “[Former president Abdelaziz] Bouteflika is no longer the... Еще problem; the problem is who hold power today. Today the Algerian diaspora's fight is against all those who have had power for 60 years, who have eaten the country,» said one of the protesters. The 82-year-old Bouteflika, 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. Bensalah has since announced a new presidential election, scheduled for July 4, to choose a successor to Bouteflika.
