Agence VU
Algerian Presidential Election

The first round of the Algerian presidential election -to be held on 17th April-, should not bring surprise. Even though there are six candidates, only one name stands out. Abdelaziz Bouteflika, former President and "ghost" candidate, remained remarkably absent throughout the election campaign. He made his last public speech on 3rd March 2014.

Abdelaziz Bouteflika surrounded himself with a loyal team to carry out this campaign; a close entourage traveling across the country to convince voters, while at the same time, demonstrations of anger in Algiers and Tizi Ouzou are strongly repressed.
