The FLN and RND won the most seats in Algeria’s 58 regional assemblies. But no party got an absolute majority, so they have to negotiate to form a majority coalition.

Widespread disillusionment kept the turnout at 34–36%, but it was still higher than the 23% participation rate in the June Legislative Assembly elections.

President Abdelmadjid Tebboune framed the vote as the final step in the process of renewing politics after Bouteflika’s ouster, following the presidential and legislative elections. However, the FLN party remains dominant, and pro-democracy activists say that the political changes since 2019 are merely pretentious and have failed to make Algerian politics more open and fair.
