Thousands are rallying across Algeria on Friday, May 31, to demand fundamental changes in political leadership following former President Abdelaziz Bouteflika's resignation from office and the postponement of the planned July 4 elections. Large demonstrations have been reported at Place de la Grande Poste in central Algiers and in other major cities, including  BouïraOran, and Tizi Ouzou. The latest gatherings mark the 15th consecutive Friday that demonstrations have taken place across Algeria.

A heightened security presence and associated disruptions (e.g. transportation, commercial, internet service) are likely during protests. Clashes between protesters and police cannot be ruled out.

Further political rallies and protests are likely across Algeria in the coming days and weeks amid the ongoing political uncertainty.


Bouteflika resigned as president on April 2 following weeks of protests sparked by his intention to run for a fifth term. A caretaker government was approved on March 31, though protesters have vowed to continue to hold demonstrations until the elections. 


Individuals in Algeria are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, and anticipate a heightened security presence and localized business and transportation disruptions near demonstration sites.
