    Published on March 13, 2019

    In Algeria, protests continue after President Abdelaziz Bouteflika dropped his fifth term bid and postponed next month’s presidential elections indefinitely. Hundreds of protesters marched through the Algerian capital Algiers demanding  Bouteflika’s immediate resignation.

    Bouteflika has dropped his bid for a fifth term, but protesters are demanding him to step down, accusing him of a ploy to prolong his 20-year rule.

    Algerians who first celebrated Bouteflika’s decision are now back on the streets of central Algiers demanding the resignation of the entire government.
