Algerian PM quits to run Bouteflika campaign

“Algerian Prime Minister Abdul Malek Sellal will resign on Thursday to run the reelection campaign of the country’s ageing President Abdul Aziz Bouteflika, a source close to the presidency said on Wednesday. Backed by the National Liberation Front (FLN) party and the army, Bouteflika is almost assured five more years in power. But his rare appearances have generated doubts about his health and about what happens if he is too sick to rule. Sellal himself was the first to announce Bouteflika would run again. He did little to ease questions about the president’s health when he said he would not need to campaign himself because there were plenty who could do that for him. “
