Algerian premier Abdelmalek Sellal resigned Thursday to head the re-election campaign of President Abdelaziz Bouteflika who is expected to secure a fourth term next month despite serious health concerns.Sellal, 65, is a technocrat with no party affiliations but extensive political experience, having been closely involved in the presidential election campaigns in 2004 and 2009 that returned Bouteflika to power. The outgoing prime minister has already spent much of the past year travelling around the country defending the president's track record.
