    Background: Government functionaries and party militants fared well in the legislative elections held in Algeria on Friday (5 March). They will occupy 197 out of the 281 seats of the Assembly. Although all candidates were selected by the National Liberation Front (FLN), which is led by President Chadli Benjedid, voters had a choice of three candidates in each constituency. The main losers were women. They had nine seats in the previous Algerian assembly. Their new representation has dropped to four seats in the assembly, which is largely a rubber stamp for government policy. Other losers were peasants and businessmen. President Chadli voted at his local polling station in Algiers. When results were declared, the government said that they had confirmed the nation's allegiance to the presidential slogan: 'One people, one party, one religion.'
