Students and judges continued to protest in the Algerian capital of Algiers on Tuesday, against President Abdelaziz Bouteflika’s decision to delay presidential elections.
Demonstrators were happy when Bouteflika announced his intention not to seek a fifth term in office.
However, protesters went back to the streets as Bouteflika also delayed the country’s presidential elections, slated for April 18.
Bouteflika’s announcement came following weeks of mass demonstrations against his re-election bid and alleged plans to extend his 20-year rule.
Following the announcement, some critics have expressed concerns that Bouteflika did not set a date for the delayed vote, arguing that a timeline for his departure would be needed to quench the protesters’ demands.
Many fear that Bouteflika will remain in power indefinitely unless a new date for elections is set soon.
