🇩🇿 Algeria: Bouteflika confirms bid for fifth term amid ongoing protests | Al Jazeera English



Algeria’s 82-year-old president has formally put forward his name for a fifth term in office.
Abdelaziz Bouteflika has been facing growing protests against his rule, especially since a stroke left him unable to carry out many of his presidential duties.
He’s tried to appease Algerians saying he’ll call early elections if he wins next month’s vote.

Al Jazeera’s Barbara Angopa reports.
