The case of Algeria: What alternative to ageing Bouteflika?

Algeria's Abedelaziz Bouteflika is on the campaign trail, at least in spirit. The 77-year-old Algerian president has been completely absent from his own political rallies, and yet his victory seems certain. Bouteflika, who spent most of last year in hospital, is one of the last of the generation that fought his country's war of independence from France. But, parallel to the election campaign, there's been a distinct whiff of grassroots anti-establishment activism. What's in store for Algeria?

Produced and prepared by Anelise Borges, Haxie Meyers-Belkin and Christopher Davis
