Algeria’s armed forces chief said on Monday that elections were the best way to overcome the country’s political crisis and avoid a constitutional vacuum، according to Reuters.

After two decades in power، President Abdelaziz Bouteflika quit last month under pressure from protesters and the army، but demonstrations are still pushing for political reforms and the removal of all officials belonging to the old guard.

Lieutenant-General Ahmed Gaed Salah، speaking on state television on Monday also called for more speed in forming a committee to supervise the election، without mentioning a date for the vote.

A presidential election has been scheduled for July 4 but a source said on Friday it might be postponed.
