Algeria declares former PM winner of presidential election

Former Prime Minister Abdelmadjid Tebboune was elected Algeria's new president on Friday (December 13)-- with authorities hopeful his appointment will end months of turmoil.

The 74-year-old campaigned as a 'technocrat' - who had proven his integrity by being sacked for falling out with powerful business tycoons after just three months serving as prime minister in 2017 under former president Abdelaziz Bouteflika.

Who demonstrators successfully toppled in April.

Thousands have once again taken to the streets to protest the military-backed elite that has ruled Algeria for decades.

Warning their movement won't stop.

(SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) PROTESTER, NAME UNKNOWN, SAYING: "I came out today because these elections do not have political, popular, or constitutional legitimacy.

These people aren't stupid.

We will keep protesting until they realise all our demands.

We are fed up with this injustice and we want it to stop." The election body said some 9 million Algerians took part-- roughly 40% though some protesters said they believed the figure was false, and there were no foreign observers to monitor the vote.
