"We will not vote", "No vote with the mafia", "We canceled two elections. Never two without three, "chanted the protesters, also taking up the slogan that punctuated the first weeks of their movement:" No fifth term ". Protesters denounce the proximity of the current system with that of former President Abdelaziz Bouteflika

The protesters also called for the release of the prisoners, including the politician Karim Tabou . Released Wednesday, he was again arrested yesterday and placed in custody on Friday by a judge of another court.

Like last week, the police was important this Friday. Identity checks were carried out in the morning and people were arrested. This 32nd demonstration was dispersed by the police shortly before 17:30.
