   President Abdelaziz Bouteflika
Algeria's frail President Abdelaziz Bouteflika, in power since 1999, will stand for a fifth term at elections next year, the head of his party said Sunday.

National Liberation Front chief Djamel Ould Abbes said Bouteflika, who suffered a stroke in 2013, would be the party's candidate at the vote set for April 2019, state news agency APS reported.

Bouteflika, 81, has yet to officially announce his candidacy.
