U.N. Chief Wants Democratic Transition In Algeria
According to Reuters, U.N.
Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said on Sunday that he welcomed efforts towards a peaceful and democratic transition in Algeria.
Addressing an Arab League summit in Tunis, Guterres said any steps should be made in a way “that addresses the concerns of the Algerian people in a timely way”.
On Saturday, Algeria’s army chief of staff renewed a call for the Constitutional Council to rule whether the ailing 82-year-old Bouteflika is fit to rule.
