Bouteflika appoints a new government

Algeria's frail head of state, Bouteflika has responded to the week-long protests in his country and the government reshuffled. Army chief Gaid Salah, wanted to leave him for amtsunfähig explain, it is allowed to remain.

The massive calls for his resignation confronted Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika has appointed a transitional government. As the state television announced, comprised by the 27 Ministers, only eight of the previous government. New to the peaks of the Ministry of foreign Affairs, Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of the interior and Department of energy were occupied, among other things.

on 11. March to the head of government, appointed Noureddine Bedoui remains in office. The same applies to the army chief and Deputy defence Minister Ahmed Gaid Salah, who had spoken out recently in favour of Bouteflika for amtsunfähig explain. Salah is the Protocol procedure, the number two of the government behind Bedoui.


82 moved-year-old Bouteflika has ruled the country for 20 years. After week long protests by millions of Algerians, he had consented to it, actually, for the 18. Not to run April's planned election for a fifth term. At the same time he suspended but the choice for an indefinite period of time, what were his opponents as an attempt to hold on to Power.

Whether the measures are sufficient, is unclear. The private station Ennahar TV reported, citing policy circles, Bouteflika prepare now for his resignation. This step could be carried out in the course of the week.

the Traditionally powerful Elite of the state apparatus, the military and the secret service pulls in Algeria, in the Background, the strings. Against this, the protests are now. Bouteflika has since pulled a stroke in 2013, largely from the Public. Critics no longer assume that he holds in the power apparatus of the threads in the Hand.
