Turnout in Algeria's presidential election stood at 20% at 3 p.m. local time (1400 GMT), the head of the election authority said in a statement carried on state media.

The election is opposed by a massive protest movement that wants the vote cancelled until the entire ruling elite has been swept from power. Polls opened at 0700 GMT and will close at 1800 GMT.
