Abdelaziz Bouteflika

Algerian presidential candidate Abdelaziz Bouteflika, nominally independent but backed by Algeria’s former sole ruling party, the National Liberation Front, addresses supporters in Adrar, some 1,400 km south of Algier, late 09 April 1999. Algerians will go to the polls 15 April 1999 in an early election to elect a new president to succeed outgoing president Zeroual who stepped down last September, 19 months before the end of his five-year term.
