  • Observations: The PNSD is a minor party which despite existing and running for parliament for over two decades, had never made it into parliament until the 2012 elections. In 2007, the party won 2 seats which were then disqualified by the Constitutional Court due to electoral malpractice. Its leader's absolute support for Bouteflika's third term may have influenced its 2012 success.
