Algerian opposition MP Mostapha Bouchachi has resigned his seat, accusing parliament of becoming a "docile tool" in the hands of the regime, several media outlets reported on Wednesday.Bouchachi said parliament had failed to provide proper oversight of government spending under the premiership of Abdelmalek Sellal, who stepped down last week to run Bouteflika's re-election campaign.The FFS, which had 27 seats in parliament before Bouchachi's resignation, has said it will leave it to its supporters to decide whether or not to vote in next month's presidential election.
