’Chosen One’ wins Algeria Election

1 min read


Former Prime Minister Abdelmadjid Tebboune won Algeria’s Presidential election with 57% of vote, on a poll conducted on 12 December.

The election was boycotted as only 39% of legible voters cast ballots, with protests continuing, even after the announcement.

Online he is nicknamed the ‘chosen one’, because he is perceived to be the army’s favoured candidate. The army are believed to be in control of the North African country.

Protesters who successfully forced Abdelaziz Bouteflika to set down, now demand an overhaul of political system, saying this election was a sham and won’t stop protesting, until there is a genuine transition.
