Head of the electoral authority in Algeria: 30.2% turnout in legislative elections at the end of voting

The head of the "National Electoral Authority in Algeria", Mohamed Charfi, said that the voter turnout in the legislative elections inside the country amounted to 30.20% after the voting ended.

The counting of votes began at 7 pm GMT on Saturday, after extending the deadlines for closing polling stations by an additional hour.

The authorities hope that these elections will turn the page on political turmoil, after a protest movement led to the ouster of former President Abdelaziz Bouteflika in 2019.

Parties that win a strong representation in parliament are likely to be part of President Abdelmadjid Tebboune's next government.
