Out of the 20 seats in the fray, the FLN had emerged victorious in 12 seats in 2012.

The elections held in Algeria today was considered to be the most crucial political event in the country’s 42-year-old democratic setup. President Abdelaziz Bouteflika had formed the High Independent Commission for Election Oversight (HICEO) in February, to instill confidence among the electorate.

However, voter apathy was on wide display in the polls held today, with a vast section of the electorate boycotting the elections.
