Algerian parliament president Bouchareb resigns

DUBAI (Rahnuma):  Algerian parliament president Moad Bouchareb quit on Tuesday, Ennahar TV said, after prolonged demands for his removal by protesters who saw him as a pillar of the ruling elite.\

Bouchareb bowed out three months after longtime President Abdelaziz Bouteflika resigned under pressure from sustained protests seeking root-and-branch reform and an end to systemic corruption and cronyism.

Authorities have postponed a presidential election previously planned for July 4 because of a lack of candidates, with no new date set for the vote.
