Algeria's president Bouteflika sworn in for unprecedented fourth term
Algeria's incumbent leader president Abdelaziz Bouteflika was sworn in for a fourth term Monday after winning the April 17 poll earlier this month, according to Reuters.
No president has ever served four terms in Algeria.
Bouteflika, 77, has come under scrutiny due to his ailing physical state, with serious questions arising as to whether the incumbent leader is fit enough to continue serving as the head of state.
