Protesters demand quick political change in Algeria

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

Algerian students gathered in central Algiers on Tuesday (March 12) to protest against Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika after he abandoned his bid for a fifth term in power on Monday (March 11) and postponed an election that had been set for April.

Bowing to weeks of mass demonstrations against his 20-year rule by people demanding a new era of politics in a country dominated by an old guard, Bouteflika said his last duty would be to contribute to the founding of a new system that will be in "the hands of a new generation of Algerians".

However, Bouteflika stopped short of immediately stepping down and will remain in power for some time yet, pending a national conference on political change.

Bouteflika, 82, has ruled for 20 years but has rarely been seen in public since suffering a stroke in 2013.
