Algeria’s parliament confirms Senate President Bensalah as interim president

Algeria’s parliament has officially confirmed Senate President Abdelkader Bensalah as acting head of the state for the next 90 days.

The decision on Tuesday to name Bensalah interim president follows the constitutional council’s decision last week to declare the presidency vacant, on account of former President Abdelaziz Bouteflika’s failing health.

Bensalah will rule until new elections are held, in accordance with the country’s constitution.
