Algeria's President Abdelaziz Bouteflika was expected to win a fourth term despite his poor health when official results are an**unced Friday after a vote marred by low tur**ut and allegations of "massive" fraud. The results are to be unveiled in the after**on by Interior Minister Tayib Belaiz, but Bouteflika's supporters were certain of victory and celebrated in the streets of the capital Algiers after polls closed Thursday. Bouteflika's main rival, former premier Ali Benflis, said he rejected the result and alleged "massive fraud" and "serious irregularities" across the country on polling day. Even if Bouteflika's success is confirmed, the win will be overshadowed by the fact that tur**ut dropped sharply from the previous election in 2009, after a coalition of activists and opposition parties urged voters to shun the ballot.
