What next for Algeria? Citizens have scored a first victory with the announcement that the name of the country's incapacitated president won't be put up for a fifth term. Along the way, they've proven wrong the warnings that protests would foment chaos and a return to civil war. So is this a victory for peaceful change? Perhaps not yet. A new constitution has been promised, but no timetable has been set. Nor has a departure date for Abdelaziz Bouteflika, who's still officially head of state.
