Top Algeria Party Seeks End of Crisis on Regime Change Calls

Top Algeria Party Seeks End of Crisis on Regime Change Calls

Sunday, 10 March 2019 09:38 AM EDT

ALGIERS, Algeria (AP) — The top Algerian party backing beleaguered President Abdelaziz Bouteflika, has broken its silence over massive demonstrations demanding the end of the regime, saying it's ready to work with all parties to end the crisis.

The National Liberation Front, or FLN, said in a statement Sunday that it wants to find a way out of the crisis "with the least cost to the country."

In a sign that powers-that-be may be ready for concessions, the statement praised the protest movement as a source of national pride.

Peaceful marches began Feb. 22. Calls for a general strike on Sunday were being heeded by many, with shops on major avenues in Algiers closed.

The 82-year-old Bouteflika suffered a stroke in 2013 and has been in a Geneva hospital for two weeks.
