on more than 24 million voters, the Authority reported 5.6 million voters, including more than one million numbers.

A first interim participation rate of 30.20%, already very low, had been announced on Sunday.

But the delay in the publication of the results - is because of the "complicated" counting by a new voting mode - triggered a controversy on a possible "swelling" of this figure.

As a comparison, the participation reached 35.70% in the last legislative of 2017 and 42.90% in 2012.

"Greater Party"

For years, analysts qualify for abstention of "greater party in Algeria".

But President Abdelmadjid Tebboune has already chosen to ignore the figure of participation.

"For me, the rate of participation does not matter. What matters to me is that those for whom the people vote have sufficient legitimacy," he argued after voting.

The power, is indeed determined to impose its "road map" electoralist, ignoring the claims of the Hirak: rule of law, democratic transition, popular sovereignty, independent justice.

Algerians had to choose from 2,288 lists, including more than 1,200 showed as "independent". A first. These lists were openly encouraged by a power in search of renewal of its legitimacy.

The Assembly therefore could seal an alliance between the FLN, the RND, the moderate independents and Islamists.

These are the first legislative since the popular uprising of the Hirak, which resulted in the resignation of Bouteflika after 20 years of power.
