New premier urges Algerians to accept dialogueNoureddine Bedoui laid out his plans at a news conference in Algiers three days after ailing President Abelaziz Bouteflika announced his decision not to run for a fifth term that would have extended his 20 years in power. Bouteflika's offer came after tens of thousands of Algerians staged demonstrations demanding an overhaul of a stagnant political system dominated by veterans of the 1954-62 war of independence. Prime Minister Bedoui, who replaced Ahmed Ouyahia on Monday, said the new government would be formed early next week.
