Bouguerra Soltani , head of the Islamist Alliance party, votes in the parliamentary elections in Algiers, Thursday, May, 10, 2012.

There are 44 political parties competing for 462 seats across this vast oil-rich North African nation of 35 million people, Africa's largest by area. (AP Photo/Anis Belghoul) less
