According to the Algerian Interior Ministry, 21.8 million Algerians were registered to vote in the 2014 presidential elections, and the estimated number for 2017 is 23.3 million registered voters.The 2016 electoral law allocates at least one electoral district for each state, though heavily populated states could be allowed more districts.In addition to the 48 national districts, there are four districts of two seats each for Algerians abroad.This number is raised to 50 percent for the seats allocated to Algerians abroad.RND came second in the 2012 legislative elections with 68 seats.Unlike in Egypt and Tunisia, where Islamists won majority seats after the 2011 Arab uprisings, the coalition in Algeria received only 49 seats, down from 60 seats in the 2007 elections.
