Ex-Prime Minister, Abdelmadjid Tebboune Wins Algeria’s Presidential Election

Former Prime Minister Abdelmadjid Tebboune has been declared winner of Algeria’s presidential election without the need for a second-round runoff, the electoral commission said on Friday.

Tebboune, 74, took 58.15 percent of the votes, trouncing his four fellow contenders, commission chairman Mohamed Charfi announced.

Like him, they all served under the two-decade rule of Abdelaziz Bouteflika, who resigned in the face of mass protests in April.
