New Algerian PM says cabinet to be formed early next week

ALGIERS, March 14 (Reuters) - Algerian Prime Minister Noureddine Bedoui said on Thursday that his new cabinet would be formed early next week and would start consultations to pick the chairman for a national conference on the political transition.

Ailing President Abdelaziz Bouteflika has decided not to run for a fifth term in the face of mass demonstrations. Bedoui was appointed premier this week after his predecessor Ahmed Ouyahia resigned. (Reporting by Hamid Ould Ahmed, Writing by Nafisa Eltahir Editing by Gareth Jones)
