[A]. Abdelaziz Bouteflika
[B]. Abdelkader Bensalah
[C]. Gaid Salah
[D]. Noureddine Bedoui

Answer: Option B

Explanation:

Abdelkader Bensalah was appointed president for a three-month transitional period after weeks of mass protests led to the resignation of long-serving former President Abdelaziz Bouteflika on April 2. Algeria's newly appointed interim President Abdelkader Bensalah announced the election would be held on July 4 to vote for a new president. However, the 77-year-old Bensalah is barred under the constitution from running in the upcoming election.
