On Tuesday 26 2019, the citizens of Algeria took the streets to protest against President Bouteflika re-election bid, calling him unfit to rule. The ailing 82 years old wheelchair-bound President Abdulaziz Bouteflika, who has ruled Algeria for four terms (20 years), declared his intention to run for the fifth term in office in April. This announcement sparked a mass protest, the citizens wanted a change in the much-decried system that has kept him there and has a stranglehold on the power structure.
On Monday 11 2019, President Abdulaziz Bouteflika announced that he will not be seeking a fifth term in office, postponing the April 18 elections. Shortly after the announcement, hundreds of Algerians have been celebrating President Abdelaziz Bouteflika’s decision not to seek a fifth term in office. The decisions announced yesterday are a partial victory for the people’s movement. However, he still intends to hang on at least until a successor is chosen, in an election that so far has not been scheduled. The greed for power is intoxicating and reflects among most African Leaders.
Nevertheless, Will This Be Considered The First Step To The Freedom Algeria Seeks?
