NAfter the protests forced resignation of the long-term president Abdelaziz Bouteflika the Algerians are to elect their new head of state on 4 July. Bouteflika’s successor Abdelkader Bensalah signed the corresponding decree on Tuesday, according to the Algerian news agency APS.

According to information from television broadcaster Ennahar TV, the Ministry of the Interior admitted ten new parties. Only the day before, the Algerian parliament had officially appointed Abdelkader Bensalah as interim president. The news of Bensalah’s takeover had not ended the mass protests against the government.

The Algerian military announced that it would “accompany” the political transition. The armed forces would monitor the election preparations critically, said army chief Ahmed Gaid Salah on Wednesday.

Earlier, the army chief had promised that the circle around the former head of state would be disempowered. The members of the country’s still-governing leadership should be held accountable for possible crimes such as corruption.

“The army meets the demands of the people,” he said before officers and soldiers.

In the capital Algiers thousands of people went on Wednesday again to protest against Bensalah.

The demonstrators see him as an old companion of Bouteflika and representatives of the regime whose overthrow they demand.

Former President Bouteflika resigned last week after weeks of mass protests. He had ruled the largest African country for 20 years.
