Algeria’s caretaker government is facing demands for the removal of the ruling elite.
The ailing 82-year-old President Abdelaziz Bouteflika quit on Tuesday after a final nudge by the military and protests.
The protestors called for democratic reforms.
They said, they want a president who understands what are the needs of the population.
Young Algerians are demanding jobs in a country where one in every four under the age of 30 is unemployed.
Elections will be held in three months with no successor in sight.
Protests were initially ignited by Bouteflika’s plan to seek a fifth mandate in elections this month.
The top priority for any successor would be to create jobs for almost 70 per cent of the population.
The North African country has almost no foreign debt burden.
