Algeria’s anti-regime protests: 7th Friday, strong presence of Army retirees


Algeria – This Friday, April, 5th, marks the 7th  Act of anti-regime demonstrations. After three contests against the candidacy of Abdelaziz Bouteflika for a fifth presidential term, the head of state responded favorably by giving up his candidacy and postponing indefinitely the presidential election that was scheduled for April 18.

Later, the outgoing President Bouteflika officially notified to president of the Constitutional Council his decision to end his mandate as President of the Republic.

Today’s protests are marked by a strong presence of the retirees of the National People’s Army (ANP).

Wearing their military fatigues, caps and berets, army retirees, most of whom served during the dark decade, came to the capital  to take part in demonstrations calling for a change of regime.

They sang patriotic songs, but also slogans in favor of the popular movement and the former President of the Republic, Liamine Zeroual.
