Hundreds of thousands of protesters marched around Algeria near here, which entered the sixth day after the country’s ruling forces called on President Abdelaziz Bouteflika to resign.

During the procession, protesters acted in dancing, honking and screaming the slogan of independence, as well as demanding all elite politicians to do the same, saying that when they opposed Abdelaziz, they also dismissed military intervention.

“Demonstrations on the road will continue until the demands are met,” said student, Mohamed Djemai, 25, when hundreds of riot police watched protesters and helicopters hovering in airspace.

“We only have one word to say today, all the groups must resign immediately and the game is over,” said the trader Ali, as other protesters screamed ‘people want the fall of regime’.

Chief of Staff, Lieutenant-General Ahmed Gaed Salah, on Tuesday called on the Constitutional Council to decide whether the 82-year-old president was eligible to resume work.

Abdelaziz is rarely seen in public since stroke in 2013 and protesters say he is not worthy to rule.
