Algeria ready to organize presidential election: official
Algerian Interior Minister Noureddine Bedoui said on Thursday his administration is prepared to organize presidential election scheduled for April, Trend reports citing Xinhua.
All human and material potentials are available to hold the election after Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika summoned the independent election commission, Bedoui said in a speech before the district chiefs in the capital Algiers.
Bouteflika is expected to announce the organizing of election in a few days according to the constitution which holds that the summoning of the election commission takes place three months prior to the balloting.
The Algerian president's fourth term is expiring in April 2019 but no government figure has so far shown interest to run in the election as 81-year-old Bouteflika will most likely seek a fifth term.
