Algeria 2009

In fake election news, incumbent Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika, the 72-year old senile crook in office since 1999, has been massively re-elected. With around 74.54% turning out (against barely 36% in the 2007 legislative elections), Bouteflika has won over 90% of the vote. He had recently changed the constitution allowing him to run for a third term in office. The election was boycotted by Said Sadi, a secular liberal who opposed the constitutional change and called the election, rightly, a farce.

Abdelaziz Bouteflika (FLN, crooks) 90.24%
Louisa Hanoune (Workers’ Party) 4.22%
Moussa Touati (FNA, nationalist) 2.31%
Djahid Younsi (El Islah, moderate islamist) 1.37%
Ali Fawzi Rebaine (Ahd-54, nationalist) 0.93%
Mohamed Saïd (PJL, moderate islamist) 0.92%
