ALGERIA-PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS
Algerians trickle into polls for presidential election expected to be won by ailing incumbent

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, April 17, 2014 5:41 AM EDT
ALGIERS, Algeria


Algerians are trickling into the polls to elect a new president of this oil-rich North African nation in an election expected to be won by the ailing incumbent.

President Abdelaziz Bouteflika has ruled this nation for the past 15 years and, despite suffering a stroke, is running for a fourth term on a platform of stability.

As polling stations opened in central Algiers Thursday, it was mostly elderly retirees coming to cast their ballots and saying stability was a key factor in their decision.

Younger Algerians are disaffected by politics and don't vote in large numbers.

Official turnout figures of 75 percent in the 2009 re-election of Bouteflika are viewed with skepticism.

Opposition candidate Ali Benflis said he will not stay silent if there is electoral fraud.
