Algeria’s President Abdelaziz Bouteflika is resigning after weeks of mass protests, according to state media report.
Mr Bouteflika, who has been in power for 20 years, had already dropped plans to seek a fifth term as opposition to his rule grew.
The powerful Algerian army had called for the 82-year-old to be declared incapable of carrying out his duties.
African presidents should stop being dictatorship in rulings. You remember same Algerian president was sick like 6 months ago and went into hiding.
