CAIRO (Reuters) - Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika is preparing to announce his resignation in accordance with article 102 of the constitution, Ennahar TV said on Sunday.
Under the article, a constitutional council can declare Bouteflika unfit for office or he can resign himself.
Bouteflika, who has faced more than a month of mass protests, might announce his resignation on Tuesday, the private station said, citing political sources.
