Out of the crypt : Algeria’s Bouteflika is running for 2019 Presidential elections.

I am sorry for being rude, so rude to choose this headline. I know it is but it is the only suitable thing I can see.
Algeria’s ruling party National Liberation Front “FLN” declared on Sunday that President Abdel Aziz Bouteflika was going to run for the presidency in the upcoming Presidential elections in April 2019 according to official Algeria Press Service “APS” news agency !!

I could not find the exact news on the official APS website but I found news reports like Former elected MPs called Bouteflika to run for the fifth time and the National Rally For Democracy Party calls President Bouteflika to continue that building the nation process and to run for the office again !!
It is on France 24 and the Algerians have not denied so the news is true.

Back to APS news reports, well I am familiar with that crap of supporting the great president for life. I am Egyptian and I see and hear that talk 24/7.

Abdel Aziz Bouteflika who is currently 81-years-old suffered a stroke in 2013 and has been confined to a wheelchair since then.

The man who has been in rule since 1999 in Algeria does not look healthier or better now.

He does not attend any events except meeting foreign guests. The hypocrite officials in Algeria put a big photo for him like a cutout in public events he can’t attend due to his heath !!
In fact, he needs to resign and rest in his house.

I do not understand why the Algerian army generals who run the show actually insist that the man who unfortunately became a joke among new generations in the Arab world when they can find someone else corrupted enough to keep their interests what so ever !!

According to, 30% of total Algerian population is between 15-29 years old and 70% of the population is under the age of 30.  Young people below 30 years old represent 72% of all unemployed people in the country.

As we are in the Halloween season, it seems that we are in front of old strongmen coming out of the crypt to remind us that they are still ALIVE in the worst way ever.

First, we saw Sultan Qaboos receiving Israeli Prime minister in an unannounced visit on Friday and it was just the start as we find Bouteflika telling him to hold “his beer” because he is going to run for the fifth time for presidency !!
