    Opposition parties and activists in Algeria are demanding election in six months.

    They want an independent body to oversee the polls.

    Several groups took part in a National Forum for Dialogue meeting on Saturday.

    Pro-democracy protests began in February - which led to the resignation of longtime President Abdelaziz Bouteflika two months later.
