Algeria’s early legislative elections were vetoed by Chirac’s protest movement and some opposition parties, and were marked by a very strong abstention on Saturday, June 12.
This is the first legislation since the unprecedented peaceful popular uprising that was born when the fifth term of President Abdelaziz Bouteflika was vetoed on February 22, 2019. The uprising After 20 years in power, he was forced to resign nearly two months later.
The main problem is that Mohamed Chorfi, chairman of the National Independent Electoral Agency (ANIE), said that the national turnout rate reached only 30.20%, the lowest score in at least 20 years in legislative elections.
In contrast, in the last legislative election in 2017, this proportion was 35.70% (42.90% in 2012). Even compared with the 2019 presidential election, even involving the 2019 presidential election, only 40% of the vote selected Abdelmadjid Teboune, which is a motion abstinence.
But no matter what happens, power will accompany it. “For me, the turnout rate is not important. What is important to me is that the people voted by the people have sufficient legitimacy.”, Said President Abdelmadjid Tebboune.
