Algiers: Algeria on Sunday awaited the results of a parliamentary election boycotted by the long-running Hirak protest movement and marked by widespread abstention. Turnout was just 30.2 percent, electoral commission chief Mohamed Chorfi announced after Saturday’s vote -- the lowest in a legislative poll at least 20 years. He said the shape of the new assembly should emerge on Sunday but it would be 96 hours before official results are announced.
