Algeria’s Ex-President Abdelaziz Bouteflika resigned after massive street protests demanding his 20years of rule terminated.

A source says,  Algeria would hold a presidential election on Dec. 12, interim President Abdelkader Bensalah said in a televised speech on Sunday.

Weekly mass demonstrations forced veteran president Abdelaziz Bouteflika to resign in April, leaving Algeria in constitutional limbo and facing a stand off between the protesters and the army-backed government.
