FILE - In this Wednesday, May 9, 2012 file photo, Francois Hollande's political adviser Aquilino Morelle smiles as he walks to a meeting of the Socialist group at the National Assembly in Paris. The French president’s top adviser has resigned following allegations of a past conflict of interest, striking a new blow to already unpopular Francois Hollande. Aquilino Morelle - Hollande’s political adviser and head of communication staff - announced his resignation Friday, an official in president’s office said. Morelle has denied allegations by news website Mediapart of a conflict of interest while he worked for the government pharmaceutical regulator in 2007, while also lobbying for the drug industry. The report also criticized Morelle’s supposed lavish lifestyle at a time when the government is making harsh cuts in public spending. Hollande’s approval rating has recently hit a new low of 18 percent despite a cabinet reshuffle three weeks ago. (AP Photo/Thibault Camus, file)PARIS (AP) — The French president's top adviser has resigned following allegations of a past conflict of interest, striking a new blow to the already unpopular Francois Hollande.

Algeria's President Abdelaziz Bouteflika casts his ballot during the presidential election in AlgiersBy Patrick Markey ALGIERS (Reuters) - Algeria's President Abdelaziz Bouteflika appeared set to win re-election for another five years on Friday after a vote opponents dismissed as a stage-managed fraud to keep the ailing leader in power. Sitting a wheelchair, Bouteflika cast his vote on Thursday in a rare public appearance since suffering a stroke last year that has raised doubts about whether, after 15 years in power, he is fit enough to govern the North African oil state. Official results were scheduled to be released later on Friday by the interior ministry, but Bouteflika's allies on Thursday were already claiming a landslide victory for the veteran of Algeria's independence war. Bouteflika, 77, was already widely expected to win with the backing of the ruling Front de Liberation Nationale (FLN) party, which has dominated the political system since independence from France in 1962.
