Diplomat Lakhdar Brahimi to chair transitional conference on Algeria - source

ALGIERS, March 12 (Reuters) - Veteran Algerian diplomat Lakhdar Brahimi will chair a conference on the country’s political future proposed by President Abdelaziz Bouteflika, a government source told Reuters on Tuesday.

Bouteflika earlier abandoned plans to stand for a fifth term amid mass protests

The conference will include demonstrators’ representatives as well as participants from Algeria’s 1954-1962 independence war, the source said. (Reporting by Lamine Chikhi; editing by John Stonestreet)
