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.
