Thousands of Algerians on Friday held another major street protest demanding political reforms.
They have been agitating for months calling for a complete overhaul of the political structure in the north African country.
Sustained protests for most parts of this year forced former President Abdelaziz Bouteflika out of power.
He had ruled for 20 years and wanted to continue but eventually bowed to pressure to quit.
Abdelkader Bensalah was appointed as interim president of the country in April but protesters are unhappy with such an arrangement.
Bensalah was the speaker of Algeria’s upper house parliament and will now be in charge of the country until the next election.
Protests have continued with protesters demanding Bensalah’s resignation. They want an end to the dominance of the elite who have ruled Algeria since 1962.
On Friday there were banners that read “You all go” and “We need new figures”.
On Monday the country’s constitutional council scrapped the presidential election planned for July 4 due to lack of candidates.
That means Algerians will have to keep on waiting for a new government.
Young people make up about 70% of the country’s population. Any future election is crucial for them in seeking a new direction for the country.
Unemployment remains high among Algeria’s young people, making them very anxious for a change.
