Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika has ended months of speculation over his political future by announcing he is running for a fourth term in April’s election after 15 years in office.

Rivals say the 76-year-old independence veteran who suffered a stroke last year is too frail to govern.

One opposition leader had even called for Bouteflika to show his medical records before seeking office again.
