Most recently, hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets in Algiers on Saturday for the retreat of the 82-year-old president. They also demand a disempowerment of the entire political elite. Opponents accuse Bouteflika, among other things, that he could no longer exercise his office after a stroke a few years ago and was a puppet. He loses support especially among younger citizens. Nearly 70 percent of Algerians are under 30 years old. Of these, more than a quarter are out of work.

Bouteflika has been in office since 1999. A few weeks ago, he had bowed to initial protests and renounced a renewed candidacy in the April presidential election. The vote is now postponed indefinitely. So far, however, he refuses to resign on the grounds that he wants to remain in office until the adoption of a new constitution.

Meanwhile, former allies turn away from him. Chief of staff Ahmed Gaed Salah has stood behind the demonstrators. In the past, Bouteflika could always rely on the military and an inner circle of other veterans of the Revolutionary War from 1954 to 1962. Meanwhile, parts of the ruling party have joined the protesters.

The new prime minister is the 59-year-old Noureddine Bedoui, as the state-run Algerian news agency APS reported on Sunday evening. The Cabinet therefore consists of 27 ministers. Six of them also belonged to the old government, which had resigned after the protests in the North African country. Bedoui had promised a government of technocrats in mid-March, in which all political spectrums should be represented. Many politicians refused to join the government. The protests were also directed against his appointment as head of government.
