Algeria sets presidential election for July 4

ALGIERS (Reuters) – Algeria will hold a presidential election on Thursday July 4, a statement from the presidency said on Wednesday.

Algeria’s interim president, Abdelkader Bensalah, had promised on Tuesday in a televised speech to organize free elections after weeks of protests that led to the resignation of Abdelaziz Bouteflika after 20 years as president.
