Algerian unions refuse to support PM's efforts to form government

ALGIERS, March 18 (Reuters) - Thirteen Algerian unions have refused to back newly-appointed Prime Minister Noureddine Bedoui’s efforts to form a government he hopes will placate protesters who are pressuring President Abdelaziz Bouteflika and his inner circle to step down.

“We will not hold discussions with this system, we belong to the people and the people said ‘No’ to the system,” Boualem Amora, one of the leaders of the education sector unions, told reporters. (Reporting by Algiers bureau; Writing by Michael Georgy; Editing by Clarence Fernandez)
