Thousands have taken to the streets of the Algerian capital demanding a complete overhaul of the country’s political structure.

According to a BBC report, this is the seventh successive week of Friday protests and Tuesday’s resignation of long-serving President Abdelaziz Bouteflika – does not appear to have satisfied the demonstrators.

According to the constitution, parliament’s speaker should take over.

But protesters want all those associated with Mr. Bouteflika to go.

The president, who had been in power for 20 years, said this week that he was “proud” of his contributions but realised he had “failed in [his] duty”.
